What's the motivation for your talk at QCon London 2024?

Great question! Since I spend so much time in the community, I often hear people asking recurring questions and not fully understanding some topics that are prevalent in the current zeitgeist. I want to help people understand the current state of software and what the future holds.

How would you describe your main persona and target audience for this session?

The target audience is developers and software engineers. The persona is someone who is interested in software and wants to understand the current state of software.

Is there anything specific that you'd like people to walk away with after watching your session?

I want them to walk away with a better understanding of the current state of software and what the future holds where they can feel empowered and have high-quality conversations with confidence.
