How Did We End up Here?



Trisha Gee and Todd Montgomery attack the technology industry’s sacred cows by exposing the motivations that hide behind them. They discuss how these motivations lead us into practices that hinder rather than help us deliver quality software. Also, they discuss why some organisations seem to be achieving things that the traditional corporate IT departments can only dream of.


Todd Montgomery is Ex-NASA researcher, Chief Architect at Kaazing. Trisha Gee is Java Champion and Engineer.
