The speaker
Ianis is a connoisseur of the art of clumsy abstractions and inexplicable program code. He firmly believes that any problem can be solved with elegant ideas that result from thorough analysis. He strives to fill his out-of-work time with music creation, trail running and abstract mathematics.
The talk
The magic of minimalism
Minimalism in art arises as a protest against the aspiration of artists to express themselves via peculiar unintelligible and unconventional means. Minimalists instead use little but sufficient magic. To what extent can these ideas be applied to finding balance between theoretical elegance and practical usability while creating abstractions and implementing them via program code? How to reduce the initial shock that our code causes in others? This presentation will give guidance to the answers of these questions.
