Challenging Conventional Wisdom: "Best practices", really?

We often accept a "best practice" simply because it sounds reasonable. In this session, the presenter examines "best practices" that may include:

* Code comments
* Test coverage
* Monoliths/distributed systems
* Issue tracking
* Native code, VM/GC
* "Move fast & break things"
* Cattle, pets
* Cloud-based IDEs
* Self hosting, public cloud
* JSON, XML

Challenge everything! (Except for that last statement, perhaps)
