Visual Studio Live! Keynote: Lies Developers Tell Themselves


8:00am - 9:00am

Level: Everyone

Billy Hollis

Developer. Designer. Speaker. Author.

All humans sometimes deceive themselves, and developers are no exception. From "I can get this done in a week" to "My job is to write code", developers often convince themselves of things that are only partially true - or even outright ridiculous.

These seductive-but-false notions raise stress, reduce quality, and sometimes hamper developer careers. In this session, developer/designer/architect Billy Hollis will bring out his top ten uncomfortable truths about software development, with some humor to make them easier to hear. Come and see how many apply to you and your team.
