Systems Thinking for DevelopersKeynote
Good programmers are great linear thinkers. We can model our programs’ execution.
The great master of logical, rigorous thinking was John Von Neumann, mathematician. Progenitor of modern computer architecture, formalizer of quantum theory.
When programs join a distributed system, and when we join a team, certainty becomes elusive. Linear thinking is not enough.
Contemporary to Von Neumann was Gregory Bateson, anthropologist. Progenitor of systems thinking, raiser of octopuses.
From stories of these two scientists, Jess draws a collection of patterns from systems thinking that help in code, in software, and in life.
