It never hurts to start the year with a review of why we are here.  As the years go by, we get deeper into the details of becoming a better developer.  This better philosophy is the core of our content and the drive to keep moving forward every day.  Although we have touched on these topics and suggestions before, this presentation gathers our thoughts and guiding principles in one place.

Not Perfect, Just a Better Philosophy

The bottom line of all of these suggestions and observations is that we will never be perfect.  There is way too much to know in the world of IT for any one person to master the content.  That leaves us to throw out perfection and work on learning as much as we can.  The Develpreneur philosophy is to embrace this need always to learn and find ways to create a sustainable model for it.

You may think that a sustainable model is over the top for continuous learning.  However, there are far too many examples of burnout and bailout in the IT industry.  We have all seen that continuous learning requires a balance to keep up with technology advances while leaving us able to live and enjoy life.
