Let me tell you why you are here, reading this abstract, attending this conference. No, not because you get a day off if you attend a conference. Not for swag. You’re here to learn.
We learn to become better, but there will always be someone even better at something. What should we do? Quit our profession? Start breeding cats and hamsters to repeat platypus’ success? Or continue doing what we’re doing, but… differently?
What if I told you that the only path for a successful developer is to start making Badass Software? Don’t know what is it? Don’t worry, you may have been creating it already! Or that idea that you had a couple of years ago - may have turned into something Badass! Not “popular”. Not “cool”. Not “in Scala”. Badass. And I will explain to you what it means and how to create it.
