Joe Yoder to Speak at SATURN 2011

Joe Yoder, co-author of Big Ball of Mud, will speak at SATURN 2011 in a plenary session at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, May 18. The title of Yoder’s talk will be “Big Ball of Mud: Is This the Best that Agile Can Do?

In his talk, Yoder will assert that the Big Ball of Mud pattern–a “haphazardly structured, sprawling, sloppy, duct-tape and bailing wire, spaghetti code jungle” is the “de facto standard software architecture.” He will explore why this architecture is so popular, what forces drive good programmers to build ugly systems, and how we can we make such systems better. Here is the complete abstract for Yoder’s SATURN 2011 talk.
