Cool & Useless

A session at Topconf Tallinn 2012

Thursday 1st November, 2012

5:15pm to 6:15pm (TMT)

Just because you can doesn't mean you should. On the other hand, not everything that is cool and fun is necessarily useful and practical. Programmers and other technical types often enjoy playing with ideas, often for the sheer fun or challenge of it, not because an idea is directly useful or likely to provide meaningful business value to some stakeholder. This talk looks at and celebrates code and other geekish manifestations of things that are cool and useless.
