João Antunes

Microsoft MVP, Code, headbang, grouch, repeat!

Hey folks! My name is João Antunes and I work as a software engineer, mostly with .NET technologies, but I like to play around with other tech as well.

My main interests are software architecture, design and development, with more focus on the backend, but with a view of the whole stack.

I love to explore new technologies, dig up some fringe topics and dive into over-engineering sessions, but always trying not to forget the basics and how they’re essential to everything else.

Session Title: OOPs, I Did It Again


Object oriented is one of the most broadly used programming paradigms. Problem is, most of the times, even if we use a primarily OO programming language, we’re not really taking advantage of it or other useful paradigms and language features, ending up in a mostly procedural scenario.

In this session, I’d like to share some ideas to improve our code, making it easier to understand and maintain, taking better advantage of our languages’ capabilities, mixing paradigms as appropriate.

None of these ideas are new, but it seems we keep forgetting them and get back to the same old mess.
