Simple Software Is Hard - Tales From The Trenches - Bertrand Delacretaz, Adobe
Simple software wins every time, but it can be very hard to create. Based on concrete examples from past projects, we'll show how high one can put the bar in terms of simplicity, and how you need to be ready to throw away your work, even many times, to come up with something simple enough. There's no magic recipe for simple software, but our "tales from the trenches” should help you identify the key drivers that help us progress on this hard journey.

Open Development In The Enterprise - Bertrand Delacretaz, Adobe
Open Development is often mentioned in open source circles nowadays, as a way to make projects really open, sustainable and meritocratic rather than based on people's titles or hierarchical ranking.
Does this model have its place in the enterprise? Can we apply the open source governance models to enterprise projects, where you'd usually expect a strictly hierarchical decision making process?
The open collaboration methods used by the some development groups at Adobe demonstrate that this is not only possible, but brings measurable benefits in terms of agility, employee satisfaction and quality of the final product.
This talk describes the key elements that make this possible, and provides pointers to developers or project leaders to start using such a model in their own projects.
