The Coding Samurai: The Way of the Computer Warrior
The technologies we use are constantly changing. As consultants, the race to keep up doesn't end. However, other more important things don't change. Drawing on millennia-old lessons, this talk is an explication of Bushido-inspired aphorisms to remind us how to walk the IT career path gracefully.
This presentation is tailored for those interested in a career as a software consultant or those who already are. However, full-time employees can also find plenty of value in this series of "reminders." This presentation isn't about how to set up an S-Corp or which CPA to use. It’s about how to stay relevant and not lose yourself. It’s about a code of conduct to strive for that benefits you and those around you. It’s something to take with you on the path from someone who has taken a similar path.
Plus, I will be aided by my pet cat.
