The topic of this meeting will be "the fundamental laws of software
development", as described in Max's upcoming book "Code Simplicity".
The book took many years to compile, and is currently planned to be
published by O'Reilly Media in Q4 of 2011. This talk starts off with a
discussion of the broad, general rules currently known in the field of
software design, to give us a good base. Then we'll discuss the
newly-discovered Laws of Software Design and how they can be used in
practical software development, showing also how they underlie many of
the currently-known best practices.

The hope of "Code Simplicity" is to change the world of software
development, to take it from its current rudimentary, unsure state and
elevate it to a level where we all as software engineers have a common
base of ideas which we can use to understand, discuss, and handle
complexity, design, implementation, maintenance, change, and all of
the other broad aspects attendant to our software engineering lives.

Max Kanat-Alexander is the author of the forthcoming book "Code
Simplicity: The Science of Software Development" to be published by
O'Reilly in Q4 of 2011. He is also the Chief Architect of the Bugzilla
Project, the author of fedorafaq.org, and a Software Engineer at
