Session Description

Usually when we refer to a solution as “foolproof,” many people believe that it’s a solution so easy that even a fool could use it. This session is not about fooling people, it’s about people making mistakes. A foolproof solution is one that predicts input and workflow errors and makes sure that those errors are not made.
