Description

In this talk, we will outline one common fallacy in software development. It comes from inability to view software as a tool that operates on a different plane compared to traditional pen-and-paper business. In a typical scenario, customer would look for software as a replacement to traditional business, effectively robbing their business of the opportunity to transform into pure digital form. In this talk, we will explain how that fallacy happens, why development teams fail to notice it, and - most valuable - how that tragic error can be avoided in real software development. By the end of the demonstration, you will view software with different eyes: As a unique take on the business problem, rather than a rework of any existing practices.
