The Lego Hypothesis
Recorded at:

by James Noble on Oct 14, 2008 | NOTICE: The next QCon is in London Mar 7-11, 2016. Join us!

For decades, software engineering has "dreamed an impossible dream", to build software as easily as building Lego houses. In this talk, James Noble imagines a world where the dream has been realized, where software parts can be found in worldwide repositories, where most software is built by reusing existing software, and where we've finally been freed from the mundane necessity of programming.


James Noble is Professor of CS and SE at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. His research centers around software design and is colored by longstanding interest in OO approaches to design, aliasing and object ownership, design patterns, agile methodology, via usability, visualization and computer music, to postmodernism and the semiotics of programming.

QCon is a conference that is organized by the community, for the community.The result is a high quality conference experience where a tremendous amount of attention and investment has gone into having the best content on the most important topics presented by the leaders in our community.QCon is designed with the technical depth and enterprise focus of interest to technical team leads, architects, and project managers.
