Price of the data you’ve lost

50 minutes



I’ve been working as software engineer for a long time and almost every time I am introduced to a new application I feel desperation on the data organization within it. When I have a chance to talk to developers they explains me that it is done according to initial requirements or because of performance reasons or even because of YAGNI and KISS principles.

As a result, huge amount of incredibly valuable information was lost and was lost intentionally. It is not their direct fault because it was implemented “exactly” what they had been told. However, I do think that the design flaws were so obvious that the guys should at least be ashamed.

I want to share my vision on the application design in terms of data processing. I will show how precious data can be and why you cannot take it lightly. Code aside I will be talking only about data and data alone. I hope it will help you avoid numbers of design pitfalls when it comes to data.
