Developers are the translators between ideas and code. They translate ideas about functionality to code so the end users can benefit from a usable program. This translation has to be done in a careful and responsible way. It should be done by a responsible developer.
What is a responsible developer then?
It is a developer that writes clean, testable and maintainable code. A developer who can explain and describe his work. Someone that knows that he grows by helping his fellow developers and never settles for second best.
Thomas will discuss the properties of a responsible developer and suggest ways you can improve to become a responsible developer.
