Increased impact through strategic code avoidance


For beginning programmers, coding is a superpower. But as we gain experience, code-centric thinking can become a trap. Prepare to have your conception of what it means to be a programmer challenged, as we explore how to increase your leverage by choosing NOT to write code.


Super enjoyed @avdi’s talk on ensuring you as the developer understand the potential consequences of writing code and ultimately understanding what business case there is for solving it with code

I honestly think it was one of the best talks over there. It was like a breathe of fresh air and I told myself “Wow, that’s exactly what I need!”.

@avdi thanks again for the fantastic closing keynote at Southeast Ruby! Always appreciate a good reminder to challenge my assumptions!
