Palestra: Don’t manage safety like features: what nuclear engineering can teach software teams

Apresentação em Inglês

It is an old observation in software, that safety (making sure bad things never happen) is logically dual to liveness (making sure that good things eventually happen). That duality means that all of our tricks should work, if we use them backwards.

In this talk, we will examine why safety properties are global properties, and we will see how engineering disciplines that do safety very well, like nuclear engineering and aviation, use global system analysis to build their systems. The results have surprising implications for user experience design and generally how lead your team to create higher-quality software.
