Today’s world is complex. Today’s software products are complex as well. We constantly work with software that is complex and produce complex work. We can not simplify it, but we can make complex software products easier to learn and to manage.
This talk is about how to tackle complex product design with focus on complex software. I will talk about the differences between making unnecessary complicated things simple and how to tame unavoidable complexity.
