Don’t walk away from complexity, run. Matillion presents award winning author Dr. Venkat Subramaniam.
In this keynote, Dr. Venkat will share experiences and observations from working on multiple software projects, about what leads to complexities, the traps developers and organizations fall into, and what we can do to effectively deal with these common, recurring issues we see across domains and products.
We constantly hear that change should be affordable and cost effective. True, but, in reality, that is easier said than done. Complexity makes change hard. We can't shy away from the hard problems posed by domains and business needs. So, how can we solve complicated problems without getting dragged into the quagmire of what appears to be an inevitable complexity?

The Manchester Small-Scale Experimental Machine, nicknamed ‘Baby’, was the first computer to store and run a program. Watch volunteers run our replica Baby and see how far computing has come since 1948.
The original Baby computer was built at the University of Manchester using technology developed for Second World War radar and communications equipment.
Baby was just a prototype, but it led to the development of the Ferranti Mark 1, the world’s first commercially available computer.
Our replica was built in 1998 from original parts to mark the 50th anniversary of the world’s first stored-program computer. The original no longer exists, so this is the closest you’ll get to an important piece of computing history, which took place right here in Manchester.
