Kevlin Henney is a GOTO legend and an independent consultant, trainer, reviewer and writer with over 500k views on the GOTO YouTube channel.
In 2011 Kevlin gave a keynote, "Cool & Useless", at the first ever GOTO Amsterdam conference. Kevlin was all about code and other geekery that was cool and well...useless.
Ten years later, Kevlin will take to the stage for another keynote, which could be considered to be the natural successor to his original talk, giving an honest review of the success and failure which he's experienced in the last ten years and how those years have shaped how he thinks about code, software and failure.
Software failures can be entertaining or disastrous. They can also be instructive — there's a lot we can learn.
In this talk, you'll learn:
- What Kevlin has learned since he was at GOTO Amsterdam 10 years ago
- What there is still to learn about software
- How you can learn from failure
