Please to enjoy my presentation for RailsConf 2008: Oh, The Fail I’ve Known (PDF).
Its on the things that aren’t normally covered in books and websites programmers read. The things that you really need to know if you’re going to achieve _truly awesome_ developer status.
Obviously I think they’re really important topics. Digging into them has really helped me as a software developer. I hope its helpful to you too.
Thanks to everyone who caught me afterwards or emailed to say they enjoyed the talk. And of course, if you enjoyed those videos, kudos to you as well!
