Imagine a venn diagram of your last software project. Consider three parts: what the code should do, what the code actually does and what the developers think the code does. The greater the overlap the more successful and bug free your software is likely to be.
This talk examines how to increase this overlap. We'll look at the importance of type hinting, assertions and things called value objects. We'll then look at how these techniques can be combined with modern IDEs.
By the end of the talk you'll have picked up tips on how to write cleaner software with fewer bugs that does what it's supposed to do.
