NDC returned to Sydney this year and SSW TV was there to catch all the action with our Ask Me Anything! sessions.

As usual there were a host of top industry pros talking about various subjects related to software development. SSW TV was there to run the ‘Ask Me Anything’ booth, where we grabbed some of those speakers after their sessions and talked about a number of topics.

In this AMA, SSW’s Adam Cogan interviewed Jennifer Wong and Elle Waters about accessibility.
