Design Visualization: Smoke & Mirrors (by Ruth Malan)

My friend Marc pointed me to the slides of a presentation given by Ruth Malan last year. (I also found a version with her notes here, but haven’t read through them yet.)

As usual, Ruth’s material is incredibly dense, i.e. lots of information, thoughts and insights in a small space. Don’t be fooled by her friendly and casual tone: More often than not I find myself happily trotting along with the conversation — just to go back because I realised I probably missed half of what she said. YMMV, though.

I found the thoughts on system design intent vs. system design reflection intriguing.
