Felienne interviews Marian Petre & André van der Hoek on their book Software Design Decoded: 66 Ways Experts Think. We talk about the software design process, which Petre & van der Hoek en discuss about in their book too. While there are a lot of books about software design, their books address designers rather than the design process itself. What do great designers do differently? Petre and van der Hoek distilled 66 insights about design from scientific research, such as ‘experts keep it simple’ and ‘experts try the opposite’. We talk about how to get better at designing, and how to work together on a design as a team of developers.
