Talk: Paradoxes and theorems that every developer should know

What do german tanks, your birthday and the speed of light have
to do with our daily development work? It turns out, quite a lot!

During this presentation, I will explain a series of mathematical
theorems and paradoxes that we encounter every day during development,
but we often fail to recognize. By using these theorems, we can
create better code, find more secure and efficient solutions to our
problems, and it even helps you out communicating with clients and
project owners.
