Technologies change, requirements change, language availability and viabilities also change.
The life of the creative professional (can we really continue to silo ourselves into specific camps such as developer, designer or 'web prophet') has to adapt to survive, to maintain focus, to earn money and to continue being the best one can be.
From picking a language that's right not only for you but also the client and any project requirements as well as throwing in some 'fun' development to keep your brain cells buzzing and hopefully future-proofing the application (yes, we potentially have to try to read future trends too), to seeing and understanding what existing languages can provide, what others lack and what others need to survive - there is a lot to consider.
Join Matt Gifford as we cover aspects of the development world and the environment around us to ensure that we can successfully adapt our behaviour and our focus where needed to stay current and relevant.
This is the opening keynote from devObjective 2015 held in Minneapolis, Wednesday 13th May 2015.
