Meeting: Tues Jan 4: The Code is the Design

Presenter:  Mark Haskamp - @markhaskamp


The Code is the Design.
In 1992, Jack W. Reeves wrote an essay titled "What Is Software Design?". In the essay Reeves makes the claim "that final source code is the real software design." It should be required reading for the IT profession. 

We'll explore the concept of 'Code as Design' in depth with a review of the essay. We'll also examine current day examples that provide further proof for Reeves' claim. Finally, we'll discuss how we can take the notion of 'Code as Design' and apply it on the job to make us better developers (or should that be 'designers'?)
