Alchemy and the Art of Software Development with Coraline Ada Ehmke at Madison+ Ruby
Our profession borrows ideas from engineering, architecture, and other sciences, adopting language that influences and constrains our thinking. But there are rich sources of metaphors from other areas of human knowledge. Metaphysical systems, for example, embody hundreds of years of investigating and modeling the world, our minds, and our interactions with the universe around us. This talk will explore some of these systems, uncovering gems that may change the way we think about our craft and our selves.
