CodeMash 2009 Conference - Venkat's Keynote Presentation

I attended a keynote presentation by Venkat Subamaniam at the recent CodeMash 2009 conference. He talked about the facts and fallacies of every day software development and what developers & project managers should watch out for to ensure the success of the projects. It was an excellent presentation, Venkat touched on several agile development and project management techniques such as dynamic languages, off-shoring, innovation-before-standardization, and unit testing. He has a unique way of explaining every day problems that we, the programmers, run into in our projects and never even realize that we are in the midst of a problem.

The keynote session drew great response from the audience because of the practical nature of the fallacies mentioned by the speaker. I have published a news item on InfoQ summarizing Venkat's keynote presentation. Check it out.
