NDC returned to Sydney this year and SSW TV was there alongside .NET Rocks! to catch all of 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. This year, SSW TV worked alongside .NET Rocks! to run and entire track of live interviews with some of those speakers after their sessions and talked about a number of topics.
In this AMA, NDC’s Keynote Speaker and CTO of Skills Matter, Dylan Beattie, sat down with SSW’s Chief Architect, Adam Cogan to talk about the technology behind every day experiences, what makes a great team, and what coding and drugs have in common? (Hint: they’re both addictive!)
