Title: The fundamental principles of software
Abstract: Software problems arise not from inherent complexity but from a disregard (often unintentionally) for a few fundamentals. As Alan Kay says, modern software engineering is a bit like pop culture. But this quip is more insightful than it may appear at first blush. When you clear the disorienting fog of fad, glitz and glam, you'll find the fundamentals were there all along.
