Abstraction. It's one of the most important tools we as developers have. Getting abstractions right can be empowering. Choosing the wrong abstractions can be devastating to a software project. In this talk, we will have a look at the art of abstraction from many different standpoints: Software development, psychology, biology. And on top of that, it will be about magenta.
