Scandinavian Developer Conference

Last week I gave a talk about ALT.NET at the new Scandinavian Developer Conference in Gothenburg. It was a really nice conference although a bit short for my taste – with only one day there’s less of a chance to find time to meet and interact with other speakers and participants. Things weren’t all bad in that department for my own sake though, as I enjoyed a nice speakers’ dinner the night before the conference where I had the opportunity to meet old and new acquaintances. I also found the time to get into a heated discussion with Ola Bini – he simply refused to realize why coding in Swedish is a Good Thing! ;-)

Among the highlights were Neal Ford‘s two talks – his presentations are very beautiful in the same Presentation Zen style I aspire to. Kent Beck gave a calm and somewhat fun keynote about “Habits of Agility”. Although interesting in a way I would have preferred the original topic – “Responsive Design”.

Anyway, I haven’t had the time to polish my revised slides and make them available for download so you’ll just have to do with the slides from Øredev. They are about the same. You can find them under Talks.

Thanks IBS for a great time, I hope to see you next year!

  1. I guess Ola and I are on the same page when it comes to coding in Swedish or not then :-)

      I guess it’s what you can expect from a couple of language nerds… Well, I’ll just have to settle with having Eric Evans and a bunch of other DDD practitioners on my side. “Men de ä inte kattskit de” as we say in Swedish. ;-)
