How Software Development is like Kung fu
Hands down the best (and most fun) Development Manager I've ever worked with and former Riptown peep, Core, doing a presentation at Ignite Toronto on how Software Development is like Kung Fu (I should point out that my first ever lunch with Corey first day on the new gig revolved around Asian cinema in a way that frightened both existing staff and newcomers alike who were present).
I am so stealing slides from this presentation. Awesome job Core!
Core is currently Chief Cat Herder at Freshbooks and when not wearing cowboy boots, learning Japanese swordplay, or taming atomic monsters is also an independent games developer and author of Dino Pirates of Ninja Island as well as a whole mess of other fun stuff.
