Dan North talks about the tendency developers-becoming-architects have to create bigger and more complex systems. Without trying to be simplistic, North argues for simplicity, offering strategies to extract the simple essence from complex situations.
Dan North writes software and coaches teams in Agile and Lean methods. He believes in putting people first and writing simple, pragmatic software. He believes that most problems that teams face are about communication, that is why he puts so much emphasis on "getting the words right", and why he is so passionate about BDD, communication and how people learn. He blogs at dannorth.net.

Re: When you provide the talk text...
Your video says it all
I was going to going to add Ninject IOC to my project code I am working on today , I had already coded and tested the dependency injection, but I don’t think that it fits the Simplicate Pattern and totally violates the Simplicate Principle (which states that IOC (like many things you mention in your video) makes the code totally unreadable and un-maintainable)
I asked the smiling PEZ pumpkin on my desk whether I should add Ninject or not and the pumpkin says NO.

About Dependency Injection
About DI, I found its simplicating ,rather than complicating. Agreed that its one more jar(with few more .jar as dependencies)
But it hardly took 3 to 4 hours to understand and start using it. And Not using load of features it comes with. (FYI, By the time I started programming, DI was there)
Whats your views on Groovy? Simplicating or Complicating?
Is it possible for you to share any of your Simplicated project structure or article?
He was right. Great talk. Thanks Dan. I won't even try to praise it - just watch it. I've forwarded to our corporate socialcast site, which takes some b*lls. Now I just wish I had the b*lls to stick to Keep It Simple!
Duck talking trumps duck typing. I'm going to get myself a yellow duck.
