Sandi Metz has 30 years of experience working on projects that survived to grow and change. She’s the author of the recently published ‘Practical Object-Oriented Design in Ruby’ ( and (as all who read the book know) an avid cyclist. She formerly worked for Duke University and still lives in Durham, but will confess no college basketball affiliation.

Join us for her talk: Rules

This talk proposes 5 'little' rules for writing object-oriented code. These rules are determinedly simple yet produce code that experts love and novices can be trusted to change; they fill the space between anarchy and order with practical, common sense. The rules guide without impeding, help without hindering and constrain without binding, and let you create applications that are easy to change and fun to work their whole life long.
