Session: Antifragile: Designing the Systems of the Future

Based loosely on the book ‘Anti-fragile’ by Nicholas Nassim Taleb, we look at how his theories on fragility and the ability to withstand shocks can be interpreted to help us design, produce, and manage better systems that can help us deal not only with failures, but also with rapidly changing markets and expectations in modern software development.
