Mike presents some broad, sweeping, and perhaps unfair, generalizations about programmers in the industry. He then shares his expectations for what it would mean to strive to be among the very best programmers in the field. Specifically the technical, individual and team skills required for any programmer to solve the hard problems before them. For those programmers where good enough just isn't, and that want to take control of their own learning and careers, but just need to know what their next steps should practically be to have a bigger impact.
Attendees will take away a concrete list of target areas to improve their individual performance along with a starting point for making progress. Among those areas will be an emphasis on data-oriented design, general problem solving, understanding your tools, and team communication.
Professional programmers working in team environments.
