Forget ninja developers and rockstar developers. What I'm more interested in is the superhero developer: these are the developers that do their best to help others, that try to give back to their community, and generally make the world a better place. So how can we all strive to be superhero developers? Using the origin stories and lessons from Marvel superheroes, this talk will help you become the type of developer that amplifies and helps others.

In the session you will learn everything you ever need to know about how to write the most wonderful code, in 10 minutes.
A computer programmer by day, by night I am transformed into…someone who programmes computers. Sometimes I take a break from all of this computer programming to think about how programming really works, or what computation really is. I once met a giant weetabix. My life is pretty rad.
