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 an entire track of live interviews with some of those speakers after their sessions and talked about a number of topics.
Richard Campbell wrote his first line of code in 1977, and more than 40 years later, Ulysses Maclaren caught up with him to discuss how to have a great career in software development, the power of being a consultant and sacred elephants.
