Pop Songs and Programming for Fun and Profit

The idea here is to convey ideas on how to get into development and stay as a developer using the tunes and titles from popular music. It's a fun talk where learning how to be a better person leads to being a better dev.

Through a series of pop songs we’ll look at what it’s like to:

- Start out on your own as a programmer - not sure where to go or to get involved in open source

- Work on a team dedicated to Open Source in the crazy world of SV/SF

- Open Source at a big blue company, and how large corporations view Open Source

- Sharing your knowledge with the next line of new folks looking to get in on OSS

- Going out on your own - giving a conference talk - being the expert and sharing what you know
