In this presentation, award winning author, programmer, and mentor Dr. Venkat Subramaniam will discuss some of the facts and fallacies that affect our ability to succeed in this exciting field. He will remind us about the key ingredients of success and will discuss ways to remove the impediments to clear the way to realize our full potential, as individuals and as an organization.
