At GOTOpia Europe we have the pleasure to welcome Kevlin Henney to our conference once again. This time to home in on the details.

Whether it's about implementation or requirements, Kevlin suggests that the word detail is often used to indicate something is not important enough to worry about.

The problem is that in software, the details matter because that's what software is: lots of details brought together in combination. If we don't focus on the details, we get debt, defects and delays.

In this talk, you'll learn:

  • Why details tend to be overlooked
  • Why detail is important, and how to bring the focus back to details
