What if you by pure chance got into a situation you could not handle, an exciting opportunity that was way harder than you ever expected, what if you needed to learn, FAST! A bit over ten years ago that was precisely where I was, not knowing C#/.NET and not contributing to my teams progress, I needed to learn, fast. In this session, I am sharing the framework I used to learn and the journey that took me from the worst performer in my team to teaching C#/.NET to the entire company and all the way to working for Microsoft.
