[Video 321] Bradley Grzesiak: Simplify Challenging Software Problems with Rocket Science

We often think of “rocket science” as incredibly complex — certainly, far more complex than software. But it turns out that rocket science is possible because of techniques and tools that have been developed over the years, providing aerospace engineers with the ability to solve problems. In this talk, Bradley Grzesiak argues that the techniques used in aerospace engineering are not that different from those used by software engineers, and can help to inform how we work with software.  (As a bonus, he even shows how you can perform certain space-related calculations in Ruby.)
