Fear in Programming - Matt Simpson

This presentation is about fear, and how fear can effect how I make decisions in my career as a programmer. My hope is to challenge you, and that you would challenge me with ideas on how we can conquer fear, how we can make our projects better, our teams stronger, our industry more valuable, and encourage each other to become better people.

Ever experienced the pain of a God class? I have some theories on how you can, among many things, conquer even the God class.

    Thanks Matt for taking the time out to prepare and share "Fear in Programming" with us. Albeit quite a bit of technical lingo is over my head, the message is applicable even in day to day living.

    Fear has made me rigid and at the same time doubtful of my skill set. Combine that with being denied a job over the false stereotype that anyone unemployed for more than six months is considered "damaged goods" and you have a nightmare scenario.
