The Evergreen Developer: Timeless Skills for a Long Career

May 13, 2015
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Our favorite platforms, languages, and even design paradigms will inevitably become obsolete, some on shorter timelines, some longer. We know when we sign up as developers that we'll have to constantly sharpen the saw technically, our entire careers. But there are plenty of non-technical skills we can invest in that will pay dividends in the long term, regardless of the technologies we're working with. This session is about a few of those sorts of things.

We'll talk about understanding our clients and coworkers and improving our communication with them, some ways to enhance our personal productivity, and some ways we can improve our learning skills so that when we do need to learn new technologies, we're well-equipped.
