We'd like to invite you to February session.
Paul Klipp: Dumb shit I did
Abstract: I'm not an idiot, and I don't hire idiots, but in almost twenty years of making software, I've done some really dumb stuff. In this talk, I'll review some of the dumbest stuff I've ever done, and it's dumb stuff I still see many teams at different companies doing. You'll probably see some dumb stuff that you stopped doing and you can feel smug about that, but you'll probably recognize a few dumb things that you're still doing. Afterwards, if anyone is feeling brave, we can all talk about other dumb stuff you're doing and so together we can try to reduce at least a little bit the dumb stuff that we do so that we have time to make start making some different mistakes.
