Ladders and Tar Pits: The Building Blocks of Abstraction
Monday 9/25
12:00pm — 2:00pm
52 attending

Using concepts from the papers "Out of the Tar Pit" and "Ladder of Abstraction", we'll examine what it means to build robust abstractions. We'll cover the separation of concerns: state, logic, and control. We'll talk about combining complex objects into primitives (weird, I know). The difference between Essential and Accidental Complexity. How flexibility is a result of constraints. And ultimately, we'll learn how to build better software faster by thinking about problems differently.
