This is going to be a very personal and opinionated talk, on what I foresee as a "senior" developer for the future of our profession: fears, risks, opportunities and challenges.
A talk about the personal responsibilities that we - as software developers - have. Not only to create better software, but to create a better software industry for us and for the future generations. A talk about the temptations we have to adopt approaches, processes and mental models typical of the Industrial era, instead of building our own "rules of the game" and decide on which values we want to ground our profession. A talk about the importance of the communities, the open source, the culture of making and sharing the knowledge, instead of simply re-sharing or re-using someone else's work.
Because, in the software industry, take away the technology and all that remains are again the persons, with their knowledge, their passions and their ethic.
