Computer Science Intro: How To Avoid Reinventing The Wheel

10 minute intermediate lightning


Wheels... we reinvent them on a daily basis. This is true in a lot of fields and activities, but it seems exceptionally common in WordPress development.

Computer Science has been around for longer than most people assume, and the simple truth is that most problems you could possibly encounter have been solved already... decades ago!

This session tries to give a brief glimpse into the timeframes and the usefulness of Computer Science as a discipline, and wants to make the point for looking at known solutions first before reinventing the next few wheels.
