Comment Too vendor focused... (Score 1) 197

I used to like to attend conferences because they were user focused. Meaning the end-users would deliver the majority of the presentations on what they did with X and lessons learned, pitfalls avoided etc etc...

Now most of the sessions are a vendor pitching some product and feature set.

I've seen way better content with local Meetups than the larger conferences.

As it happens you do have a choice. That choice is moving closer to work, closer to shops, and closer to other people. It might inconvenience you slightly to live like the rest of humanity, but unless you have a pressing need to be way out there, you really shouldn't be.

Yeah, and costs 10x more to do so. The long commute is what we trade to be able to afford to live comfortably, save for college etc..

Comment Accountability (Score 1) 587

I expect my employees to not only be responsible for their product, but accountable for the quality of it. Maintaining data integrity and security is worth paying for. Also, it directly translates into revenue for the company. Like a chef, use cheap ingredients and have a cheap (low quality) product... nobody will come back to your restaurant.
