The Lost Art of Simplicity



Learn something interesting while you have a great time connecting with the fabulous PHP Community! This month we are joined by Josh Holmes, a world class speaker and Principal Software Engineer Lead at Microsoft. He will be sharing about The Lost Art of Simplicity. Simplicity is a lost art in the application development space. The Wikipedia definition of Simplicity is “Simplicity is the property, condition, or quality of being simple or un-combined. It often denotes beauty, purity or clarity. Simple things are usually easier to explain and understand than complicated ones. Simplicity can mean freedom from hardship, effort or confusion.” This is a beautiful statement that we often lose sight of when we are building our applications. Instead we are on a never ending quest to fill out a checklist of features or to build something clever forgetting about the actual needs of our users to get a specific task done. This session takes complexity to task and challenges you to bring simplicity to the center of your development with some straightforward ideas and guidance.
