The Fundamental Laws of Software Development

There exists a set of fundamental adages, quotes, and philosophical "laws" which seem to govern how software is developed in the modern age. This fast, funny session will explore what these laws are, and discuss how we can use them to our advantage. From why everything takes longer than we expect (Hofstadter's Law) to why everyone seems to enjoy arguing over trivial things (Sayre's Law), we'll talk about the fundamental forces that guide how we develop software in the modern world. Come with an open mind, stay for the jokes, and you might even learn something you can take back to your job with you!
