As Martijn said:
After spending the last few years utilizing best practices in Java, following lean/agile techniques, practicing software craftsmanship and listening to the likes of Joshua Bloch and Martin Fowler, I have discovered that it’s all one great big hoax! This talk is aimed at freeing the developer from the chains of the industry and helping you get back to actually doing your job. This talk will offer several practical suggestions to get back to basics in the areas of:

* How to get the right attitude
* Self learning
* How to effectively work by yourself
* Use only the tools you need
* Sticking to what you know is best
* Get rid of the fluff
* End user testing is good enough.

By the end of this talk you’ll be re-invigorated about your role as a developer, you have the power once more!!!
