Deconstruct Seattle, WA - Thursday & Friday, April 20-21 2017

Greetings friends,

Deconstruct is a software development conference with an unusually personal lineup. I've chosen sixteen of my favorite speakers. They have diverse technical backgrounds and are uniformly excellent.

In two days, our speakers will cover a lot of ground both vertically and horizontally. By vertically, I mean analyzing systems at different nested levels of meaning; for example, tracing a bug from its faulty front-end behavior all the way down to individual CPU instructions. By horizontally, I mean analyzing multiple systems at the same level of meaning; for example, understanding overdesigned software systems by analogy to overdesigned cities.

Our venue is the Egyptian Theatre, host of the Seattle International Film Festival, in the heart of Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood. The full snack bar will be open.

Most conferences have sponsors, but this one doesn't. That means no sales pitches, advertisements, or bought speaker slots; just excellent speakers in an excellent venue.
