Whether you are a programmer, a lead, an architect, a technical manager, or just a nice simple human being your day starts and ends with making decisions. It involves making many small decisions and may involve making some big ones too. In this keynote we will talk about the art of decision making, the consequences of the choices we make, and tie that into the everyday architecture and design of enterprise systems.
