What can Rollercoasters Teach us About Software Design

When writing software we use Design Patterns as a way to show common solutions to common software design problems and also as a way to have a shared terminology with our fellow developers. This talk is about the importance of these common design problems and shared terminology, but to illustrate their importance I am going to look at a completely different industry that also has their own set of design patterns and terms.

In this talk we are going to look at the wonderful world of Rollercoaster design and engineering and we are going to have a lot of fun at the same time.

By the end of the talk you will know a lot of the common patterns and terms used in this fantastic industry and you will leave the room knowing about Inversions, Magnetic Lift Hills, Woodies, Steelies, Helixes, LSM Launches, Cobra Rolls, Brake Runs and much much more.

So put your hands in the air and prepare to have fun as we enter the wonderful world of Rollercoasters.
