Learn from the Mistakes of Others

By Alison Lloyd

. . . you won't live long enough to make all of them yourself.

Having worked in a wide variety of fields (and some buildings), including embedded software, helicopter aviation, technical theatrical production, education, and (building) construction and maintenance, Alison still finds it amazing that very different people in wildly different areas often fall into very similar pit traps.

In this talk, Alison will be examining some less-than-stellar occurrences in non-software fields and drawing out some ideas that will hopefully make software development a little less painful. Join her for a light-hearted point-and-laugh session, and learn some fun facts about random stuff.
