Conventional programming tools are designed according to several harmful and false assumptions: that software necessarily consists of plug-compatible modules; that interoperation between software stacks is rare; that information hiding is a sufficient strategy against coupling. I will briefly present an alternative vision, based on tool support for “interface hiding”, a strongly-enforced separation of concerns between integration and functionality in software. This will include both argument and (some, preliminary) experimental evidence.

This is a practice for a (very) short talk at the forthcoming Onward! conference.
