No Return: Beyond Transactions in Code and Life

At the root of catastrophes in both code and life lies a pervasive fallacy: the attempt to model processes as if they were transactions. Join Avdi for an honest, sometimes raw retrospective on two decades of building a software development career. You’ll examine how personal philosophy impacts software design — and vice-versa. You’ll encounter the transactional fallacy and how it can hinder our attempts to build resilient systems. And you’ll explore how a narrative-oriented mindset can lead to both better code and a more joyful life.
