Go to "Conscious Software Development" website for info & FREE "instant access" pass.

I’m proud to be one of the speakers in the Conscious Software Development Telesummit scheduled for November 10 – 21, 2014. This FREE virtual event will harness the perspectives of 21 speakers as they focus on some of the secrets used by top companies to improve their software development projects!

Consciousness = Awareness + Choice 

Conscious Software Development means you apply Awareness and Choice to all areas of application creation. [Are you…?]

  • Fed up with scope creep ruining your delivery schedules?
  • Exasperated when your development team’s software turns to “shelfware” by your users?
  • Afraid of project death marches where deadline after deadline is missed?
  • Worried about more subtle forms of failure that you might not notice until it is too late?”

21 speakers will tackle the issues behind these frustrations and help you figure out how to avoid them. For more info… and your FREE “instant access” pass… go to: http://conscioussoftwaredevelopment.com/
