The article concludes:
This talk will cover:
It may sound easy: make it obvious. Turns out it’s not — it’s work. In fact, making complex things simple is the process of programming. But the rewards are well worth the investment: you’ll spend less time chasing down bugs, your code will be easier to enhance, and your programming skills will improve with every embarrassingly obvious problems you solve!
While Erlang will be used for code examples (don’t worry, it’s easy!), it is not a language specific talk.
