Antifragile Software Design

The International Association of Software Architects (IASA) in Israel organized a special event about Adaptive Software Systems. I was glad to be invited to give a talk about “Antifragile Software Design”.

Title: Antifragile Software Design

Abstract: The concept of Antifragility was introduced by Nassim Taleb to describe systems that benefit from impacts and volatility.

In this talk we will discuss how this concept may be applied in the field of Software Design with the goal of developing Change-Resilient Systems.

In particular we will address two patterns which frequently appear in Antifragile systems:

1) The Barbell Strategy and the importance of the separation between high-level abstract elements and concrete implementation details.

2) The Componentization Strategy and its applications in SOA, Microservices and Software Product Lines.
