Beauty in Code is more than a conference. It's the whole essence of software development distilled down to a single day in the company of world-class speakers.
Our original idea was to do a release party to celebrate Adam Tornhill's new book, Your Code as a Crime Scene. A party is always a great idea. But this one grew into something different and even better. Since we're excited to share the news with you, let's pretend it's already February 28th - what will you get?
As Adam wrote Your Code as a Crime Scene he wanted to share the ideas and techniques he uses to tame large, complex legacy systems. The book aims to provide a new and different view of software. That view is that we'll never be able to understand complex systems from their code alone. Rather, we should view code as a living entity. Our codebases are constantly evolving, changing and growing. But they don't grow on their own.
Good code is an intricate play between technologies, people and organizations. To succeed, we need to master all aspects. That's why we've invited speakers that cover all these facets of modern software development.
At Beauty in Code you get to learn about silver bullets, the social aspects of software architectures and we'll learn what's important in building software. You'll learn about modern type systems and the amazing F# language. Of course we'll also talk about beauty in code to see if it's perfection or messiness we shall embrace.
The most important ingredient in any code you write is _you_ - your skills, knowledge and creativity is what makes a difference. That's why we provide a special session to build expertise and become better thinkers.
Beauty in Code is a day dedicated to all of us who care about creating better software. You're invited!
