Where good engineering practices would save the day Talk

As software engineers we’ve read about countless rules (SOLID, DRY, YAGNI, KISS, …), read many books (The Pragmatic Programmer, Clean Code, The DevOps Handbook, Refactoring, …) and we are sharpening our understanding of how the ideal code should look like every day during our job.

But the reality is not ideal, sometimes quite far from the ideal.

Let’s look at a few examples where good engineering practices were ignored which caused massive damages to the companies that weren’t following them. We will look at practices that would prevent the situations from happening. Stories like this will hopefully remind us why good engineering practices are necessary and maybe even help us to recognize which are more important than the others.
