First day at Uberconf. The keynote was very appropriate for a conference of this type.
Was presented by Terry Ryan called Driving Technical Change. He is the author of Driving Technical Change, a copy of which was given to all attendees.
The book summarizes his findings around attempting to introduce new technology into a team or company. He outlines the personas that most people fall into, some strategies to combat issues, and combinations that generally work.
Since this is a conference that presents many ideas, and most of the attendees will want to take some of the new ideas back to their company. Most people will find resistance for various reasons, and the info in this book will be very helpful.
Today will be a very busy day. Sessions run from 8:30am to 10 pm, and the hard part was deciding which sessions to attend. Can’t wait…
