Udgivet d. 11. oktober 2020 af Lena Ægidius

SAOS 2020 – er aflyst!

Vi er desværre nødt til at aflyse årets SAOS konference grundet de nye COVID-19 retningslinjer. Vi vender stærkt tilbage, når restriktionerne bliver løftet. 
Der vil følge mere info, pas godt på hinanden.


Vi har lyttet til jeres feedback, og har landet Adam Tornhill som årets keynote speaker. Flere af jer deltagere har ved de seneste års SAOS events, foreslået Adam som keynote. Læs mere om Adam og hans abstract og se Adam fortælle om sit oplæg i videoen ovenfor.

Speaker Profile

Adam Tornhill is a programmer who combines degrees in engineering and psychology. He is the founder of CodeScene where he designs tools for software analysis. He is also the author of Software Design X-Rays, the best selling Your Code as a Crime Scene, Lisp for the Web, and Patterns in C.


Software projects often mistake organizational problems for technical issues and treat the symptoms instead of the root cause. The main reason is that the organization that builds the system is invisible in our code. From code alone, we cannot tell if a module is a productivity bottleneck for five different teams, or whether our microservice boundaries support the way our codebase evolves or not.

This session closes that gap by taking a behavioral view of code combined with insights from social psychology to measure aspects of software development that we haven’t been able to capture before. You learn how this information lets you detect modules with excess coordination needs, measure how well your architecture supports your organization, as well as why Conway’s law is an oversimplification. To make it specific, each point is illustrated with a case study from a real-world codebase.JIRA-key
