Presentation: Surviving Data in Large Doses

Time: Wednesday 17:45 - 18:30 / Location: To be announced

Traditional software development practices struggle with data that is massive, complex and variable. Blindly following "best practices" generally results in applications that are not fit for purpose or that are hard to evolve and maintain.

In this talk, Tareq Abedrabbo, CTO and Principal Consultant at OpenCredo, highlights common mistakes and misconceptions he has encountered in building data-centric applications, sharing his ideas around how design and development of such applications should be approached.
