SIT Insights:

Graduation 2021 and Beauty of Software talk by Prof. Bertrand Meyer

Join us on March 10 to acknowledge and celebrate the graduation of SIT’s first generation of students, learn more about the opportunities at SIT from its founder Serguei Beloussov and debate the concept of beauty in software with SIT Provost Bertrand Meyer

Don’t miss your chance to explore the Beauty of Software together with SIT Provost Bertrand Meyer. In his SIT Insights Talk, Prof. Meyer will present a few strikingly beautiful artifacts from software engineering and computer science and discuss what might make them so.

"While the concept of beauty is most naturally associated with art, scientists and engineers of all fields often invoke it. Beauty is a strong guiding principle in searching for solutions to scientific and technical problems and arbitrating between rival candidate solutions. The reaction is often instinctive: “What an elegant theory!” “This technique is too ugly to be a viable approach”. What do such appeals to beauty really mean?"
-Prof. Bertrand Meyer
