Good code isn't enough

Video, slides and photos from my talk at Skills Matter

I presented an "In the brain" talk at Skills Matter last week entitled "Good code isn't enough" that looked at whether "good code" guaranteed a successful software project. I had a great time and there was some really good discussion about the factors that can affect whether a software succeeds or fails. The whole session was recorded and the video is available to watch online. The slides are also available to view online and download.

For those interested, here are photos of both sides of the whiteboard from the session.

What is good code?

Is good code enough?

If you want to learn more about the topics that we covered in the session, take a look at Enterprise Software Developer; a four day practical training course about building software within an enterprise environment in a structured, lightweight and pragmatic way.

P.S. congratulations to Peter Howarth who won the raffle for a free place on his choice of Software Architecture for Developers or Enterprise Software Developer.
