Presentation: "Being an anti-social geek is harmful"

Time: Tuesday 12:10 - 13:00 / Location: French

Developers are not known for their social skills. They're more characterized as geeks, centered around coding. This is not only depicted in movies but also promoted within the community itself. Might seem harmless and fun at times, but it is actually a source of many problems when it comes to working on teams and dealing with customers, and by justifying this kind of behavior, all we're doing is promoting it.

Learning to communicate with team members and customers is fundamental in being successful. Developers need to learn how to be social.

In this talk we’ll discuss some of the issues and find ways to solve them.
