Nick’s Nuggets: Software Development Wisdom from Twitter


I tweet a lot. A lot of software developers tweet a lot. Despite the limit of 140 characters, a lot of wisdom can be packed into a tweet. In this presentation, I’ll review upwards of 50 tweets — that’s almost one a minute! — that talk about smart, funny, wise, and interesting things to do with software development. This fast-paced, light-hearted yet insightful set of tweets by me and others will leave you full of mirth and wisdom about how you approach the software development process.
