DDD Melbourne 8 August

This is a not to be missed developer event for anyone in Melbourne and for just $49 I think its an absolute bargain. Sure, this blog has always focused on free events resources for developers, but I always gave equal supports for events that charged a small fee and to be honest $49 is just crazy for the content in this one day mega-seminar – Just look at the content:

For the record, and for full transparency the organiser(s) are part of my work, so I do have some association but thats not impacting this recommendation – just look at the content!!!!!

Hanselman and not saving babies

Ok so this is a great little article but my advice is to read the comments because they are a wonderful collection of stories of how different types of developers survive the industry and I think its just so important because I have seen so many types of burnout in the software development game. This is just gold.
