Finding Your Abstraction Sweet Spot By Johnny Austin

May 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Many would argue there are only two hard problems in software: naming and cache invalidation. I’d argue there’s a third problem – abstractions. Whether you’re implementing an API for devs outside of your organization or creating a reusable library for devs on your team, creating the right level of abstraction is difficult. You have to balance flexibility with the ease-of-use. The correct choice is often a function of time constraints, compromise, and trial & error. Johnny will talk about how to navigate these issues more efficiently.

Till is an exciting company that’s working to help people avoid having rent derail their financial lives. They’re looking to fill several roles to help them continue to meet this mission. Including: Chief Architect, VP of Engineering, CTO, Full stack Developer, and a Back End Developer. Contact david@hellotill.com if you’re interested
