I want to share a video with you guys that I think is very good. It has helped me a lot. Check it out!
After I watched that video, I thought back to some problems I've had in the past, and found that almost all problems in programming boils down to things being complected. I thought we could discuss simplicity, as defined in the video. Rich gives a good explaination of what simplicity is, but it's not always easy to see it when you encounter it. What are some instances of complexity you have encountered or struggled with? Do you have any design techniques that yield simple systems?
Btw, Clojure is a great starting point if you want to build simple systems.
