Presentation: Brain Patterns for Software Development

Track: Freestyle Track / Time: Friday 11:30 - 12:20 / Location: Hall 5

Help us to identify the situations that really matter to you. 
Share your stories and questions with us on Twitter using #brainpatterns or write a mail to patterns [at] and we try to answer them during the talk.
