The Austin Web Design & Developer Meetup Group Monthly Meetup

How to argue about code

Presented by Andrew Dupont (@andrewdupont), front-end web developer

None of us would be very good developers if we never had arguments about The Best Way to Do Things. But Andrew has had enough silly arguments about tabs-versus-spaces to last him the rest of his life. When should we stop arguing and start writing code? Andrew will share specific tactics for keeping code arguments evidence-based, respectful, and drama-free.

Client stories from hell

Refresh Austin show-and-tell time

Go ahead, vent. Share your stories of tears (and joy, and downright bewilderment) from working with clients. Some ground rules:
- Keep it snappy. (Aim for 3-5 minutes.)
- Don't kiss and tell. (Keep it clean and anonymous.)
- Don't be an ass. (And don't burn bridges. It's a small town, after all.)
- Try to reflect on what you took away from the experience. (What did you learn?)
