Unveiling the Hidden Pitfalls: An Exploration of Antipatterns a talk by Eliška Čejpová

Saturday 16 September 17:20 (30 minutes)

Have you ever discovered an antipattern in your team?

Antipattern refers to an approach in software development that initially appears to be a good solution, but ultimately leads to negative consequences. It is essentially a pattern of behaviour that is counterproductive and goes against established best practices or principles. Where can we find them?

Antipatterns can occur at various levels in software development and can manifest as recurring problems, inefficient processes, or ineffective strategies that hinder the development team's ability to deliver high-quality software. We'll dive deep beyond the surface to explore the common and lesser-known antipatterns and their impact on business outcomes and team dynamics.

And for all the data lovers, we will swim in real-world numbers and findings and we'll unlock the path to smoother software development, fostering a culture of excellence and collaboration.

Eliška Čejpová

I am a Software Developer turned into Scrum Master with a passion for communities, education and public speaking. I believe in long-life and continuous learning, and knowledge sharing. I like to fix stuff and I feel a big need not to repeat the known mistakes. That's where I found my sweet spot for discovering the rotten corners of SDLC and enabling others to adopt the best practices.

I'm a conference addict and community contributor. That means if I'm not presenting at a conference, I'm probably organising another one or facilitating some workshops.

I fight for a better world by empowering people's growth and protecting the weaker. I have a rainbow bookshelf and I collect blue lipsticks.
