Software developers all know: continual learning is part of the job. And that's what so many of us love about it. Innovation is constant, and it's an exciting challenge to keep up with so many new technologies. But where do all these new concepts, frameworks, and patterns come from? Let's take a journey through the history of innovation to explore how different worlds collided to inspire new, radical ideas. Let's discover how cross-pollination has helped our community grow into what it is now, and can help us think of new ways to solve complex problems. Join us for a session of inspirational stories that illustrate how cross-pollination has helped form some of history's most profound innovations, and will hopefully inspire you to conjure up your own radical new ideas.

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” – Albert Einstein

Very unconventional and very inspiring. Maybe I would have given a bit more "weight" to the second technical part, which instead was relatively small compared to the first part, the one with all the anecdotes.

A very good keynote with inspiring stories and well presented.


Not just an inspirational talk, but a well-researched history lesson.
