We all want to be successful in our programming careers, and I'm sure we've all seen the meme of the difference between an experienced programmer and a new programmer (it works first time...)
I would argue that we should be suspicious of early success.
My plan for this talk, is using examples from other fields to demonstrate why early success is a bad thing. I also intend to redefine what failure actually means, and why we shouldn't fear it.

He is passionate about writing good code and self improvement, as well as playing his guitar. He has served as an ACCU C++ Standards officer, was an attendee of the BSi C++ Committee in the UK, as well as the guy who interviewed various folks for the CVu ACCU Magazine, and once upon a time, ran ACCU Bristol.
