Opening Keynote: Developing passion, in many senses
Few areas of business seem to provoke as much passion as technology. Many technologists seem to be perfectly happy taking their vacation time on a busman’s holiday of conferences and community events. Millions of hours of “spare” time are poured into open source projects, lovingly crafted and then used gratefully by industry. And then there are the arguments of course… to the outside world, the idea of arguing whether a brace should go at the end of one line or the start of another must seem incredible, let alone all the language, framework and operating system debates.
So in this world where passion certainly exists, how can we make it work for us? Not cynically or selfishly, but for the betterment of all. How can we align our natural passions with our day to day work, without losing any chance of work-life balance? How can we inspire passion in others, and know when to step back, appreciating and learning from them? Where can too much passion become a problem?
Passion in technology can take many forms, many of them symbiotic. Find your passion; nurture and enjoy it. Help those around you to discover theirs, and we can inspire each other, making remarkable technological leaps while having a blast.
