Evolutionary Design

Evolve your code in a natural way and satisfy the business needs with an iterative and incremental approach

This workshop is aimed to improve the knowledge of experienced programmers on how to evolve a software system. It is a practical workshop, with hands-on coding exercises and discussions around design options.

Evolutionary Design is the practice of growing a system in a natural way, by adding the minimum amount of code to satisfy the business needs in an iterative and incremental approach. When done right, the code structure changes continuously to optimize for change, thus allowing a constant speed of development for longer periods of time.
