At previous GOTO events Eamonn and Garth presented 10 lessons from the 1990s that modern developers tend to neglect.

Some attendees were in full agreement, whilst others thought they were simply wrong. For this occasion, the duo revamped the talk with fresh advice, admonitions and war stories. So come to see how there is ‘nothing new but the very old’ and acquire valuable skills that have been marginalized during the agile revolution.

In this talk, you'll learn:
