Recently I wrote a blogpost on Yoast.com titled “Why every developer should read Plato“: At WordCamp Milano, I gave a talk with the enticing title Why every developer should read Plato. The short answer to that question: to learn Socratic thinking. In this post, I will share some of my personal journeys as a philosopher in software development. In doing so, I will also introduce a few philosophical concepts that might help you level up your skills as a developer.
In October 2013 I wrote a blogpost for Innovation Factory about software architecture: Recently we added a new feature to PIT. The feature enabled idea challenge coordinators to invite external experts to share their views in a single idea challenge. Building this feature proved to be quite an interesting challenge. It convinced us to switch from a connected design style to a more modular one.
