The Dangers of Being a Web Developer

Post from May 10, 2018 (↻ April 13, 2020), filed under .

On Monday I had the great, great pleasure of giving the opening talk at beyond tellerrand in Düsseldorf. The slides are essentially useless, but as I had focused on delivery during the performance the talk should provide value. I hope. Please check out The Dangers of Being a Web Developer on YouTube or Vimeo *.

As I’ve been asked about the talk’s various references to mostly classic and excellent books, here they are:

Thank you all who attended the talk, and Marc and team for the great conference and the kind invitation, welcome, and hosting! I can’t wait for the next beyond tellerrand—quite possibly in Berlin this November 🙏

Was this interesting? Feel free to tweet this, or to invite me for a coffee! Thank you!
