My takeaways from the conference

BigCode transforming

  • The code is a liability, not an asset.
  • Refactoring is expensive.
  • Everybody in a team should be able to draw an architecture of project!
  • Have an architect in a team. Without the architect, it is hard to be consistent with design or you will end up with lack of any design.
  • Don’t afraid to kill code. It’s easy to do when you have decoupled code.
  • We are heading to the services.

  • The seven principles of privacy by design:
    • Proactive
    • Default
    • Built into design
    • Positive sum
    • End-to-end
    • Open
    • User-centric
  • You should document your approach to protect the user data

  • Under the hood, there is PowerShell and NuGet.
  • You can improve default installer by adding in chocolatey for example path to the program in the system variable
  • Chocolatey has the default implementation of uninstalling feature, so even if your installer doesn’t provide uninstall feature, choco will know how to do it.
  • Chocolatey cannot detect reboot requirement
  • ‘choco list -lo’
    • Lists all apps installed by choco
    • Synchronise removed apps from “programs&features”.
