Description J-Fall is the biggest Java conference of the Netherlands and is organized by and for the NLJUG (the Dutch Java User Group).

October 30th: Pre-conference & Masters of Java
October 31st: The conference

Maarten Mulders and Hanno Embregts will present their session "Beware of Survivorship Bias!"

Most talks on a typical conference schedule contain success stories of technology. This could lead to survivorship bias. Survivorship bias causes you to draw false conclusions because you mostly heard about successes, but hardly ever about failures. Yet failures provide us with lots of valuable knowledge: when not to apply a certain technique, pattern or process.

We'll share how survivorship bias can easily influence your ideas and cloud your judgement. After attending this talk you'll be more aware of survivorship bias and what you can do to keep your head cool, no matter how many 'silver bullets' are fired at you.
