Brief description: Software development is a tricky job; best practices help. This lecture explains why, and suggests some ingredients people at CERN have found useful over the last decades. Together they can reduce bugs, improve code usability and maintenance; in short: they simply help you write better code.

Speaker's short bio: Axel started off as a physicists, then took the exit into the land of computing by joining and now leading the ROOT team. He is representing CERN and its users at the ISO C++ committee. Axel has given numerous presentations, workshops and tutorials, for instance lectures to students, at the CCC/33C3 and ACCU conference and a Google Tech Talk.
