Speaker: Bruno Souza
Speaking On:
"The Java Developer Career Workshop"


Being a “rockstar” or a “celebrity” developer is not about being popular or giving presentations at big events. What sets those developers apart is the work they do on innovative projects and initiatives. By working with other great developers, they create a positive feedback loop that lifts their career into the stratosphere. Which comes first? Do great developers work on great projects, or are they made great by the projects they work on? On this interactive Java Developer Career Workshop you will improve the traits and skills that set "rockstar" developers apart. Together we will create the #1 thing that will start you into this positive feedback loop. You will understand the proven science of being an expert and how to apply to software development. And you will know exactly what you need to do to work on great projects (and why that does not mean changing jobs!). Let's also discuss what is going on in the Java world, and what are new technologies trends and opportunities.

We are in the best career in history. Don't set yourself to be a mediocre developer: work on the best projects and with the best teams and become the developer you deserve to be!
