Talk at Web Dev Meetup: „Theses for Better Mobile and Web Applications“

In this talk, I rant about 3 issues in software engineering, which I repeatedly stumbled over in my career so far:

  • Choosing the tools because we like them, not because they are the best for our problems.
  • Rewriting software from scratch, not evolving it instead.
  • Piling up awesome masses of dependencies.

… and one general recommendation I draw from my experience: Build your applications as a set of APIs.

I held it at the last Salzburg Web Dev Meetup at Elements‚ awesome new offices in the Gusswerk.
