What We Left Behind - 10 Valuable Skills From the 1990s

Many features of software engineering from the 1990s are best left there. No modern developer wants to write code in text editors, grapple with centralised version control, or manually configure and run their build process. However we should be careful not to dismiss everything old as worthless. This talk presents ten valuable skills for developers that have been marginalised during the Agile revolution and are ripe for a comeback.

What will the audience learn from this talk?
The audience will learn (or be reminded) of useful software development skills and practices that have atrophied in the past few decades. Largely as a result of the dominant interpretation of Agile development. They will be given advice, resources and templates for how to reinvigorate these skills in their projects.

Does it feature code examples and/or live coding?
Yes.
