"Simple Ways To Be A Better Programmer" Discussion

Track: BoFs (Birds of a Feather)
Date: Tuesday, July 24
Time: 5:30pm - 6:30pm
Location: D135

Moderator: Michael Schwern, The Center, The Schwerniverse

As the "Simple Ways" tutorial covers a very wide range of topics, this is an opportunity to go over any topics that we don't have time for in the tutorial proper. It also an opportunity to have more intimate and personal discussions than what's possible in a big tutorial.

All attendees of the "Simple Ways" tutorial are strongly encouraged to attend to get the most out of the tutorial.
