Titus Winters talks about maintaining and refactoring large C++ code bases (i.e. code bodies that require multi-step refactoring). He describes how “higher-level” language features effectively make refactoring harder (e.g. functions, classes, templates, concepts).
Sometimes Python makes some useful things unnecessarily complex for weird and inconsistent reason … e.g. “code blocks.”
Daniele Procida explores how a certain naivety (being unsophisticated) can lead to beautiful and useful things.
This is an awesome talk for nerding out on ZFS interna. ?
Thomas Dullien of Google’s Project Zero on why security suffers because it’s actually cheaper to build more complex things (i.e. ship some piece of hardware with a general purpose processor and define features in software instead of using a purpose-built chip).
An interesting talk about Lego CAD with some glimpses into “after market” Lego. 😀
