Humans learn most effectively through pain, like being shocked by a power outlet or touching a hot iron. The same reaction can be found in technology, but how can we attribute this to programming while minimizing the most painful mistakes? Adam Culp will share some life experiences that contributed to his ongoing journey to become a professional developer, and highlight techniques used to reduce the pain and still reap the benefits. This keynote encourages attendees to aspire to achieve more in their lives.

Perfect closing for an awesome conference. Was a shame you had a cancellation, but I am selfishly glad you did. Otherwise I would of missed out on a truly inspirational talk.

Thank you for the killer conference!
