From Good To Great Developer – Resources
During the spring of 2009, I have given this presentation at the JFokus 2009 conference in Stockholm, Sweden, Microsoft TechDays 09 conference in Västerås, Sweden and at the Scandinavian Developers Conference 2009 in Göteborg, Sweden. I have also given it at a number of internal events at different companies. Please send me an email if you are interested in inviting me for an event at your company.
Thanks to everyone who attended this presentation at any of the above conferences! Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or comments.
