 Bio

Tommy Falgout, Principal Developer, Yahoo!

Tommy Falgout, Principal Developer, Yahoo!

Builder of Software, Trebuchets and Teams. Enjoyer of Life. And amazingly enough, Dad. Tommy has been developing software for 17+ years and goes between having his ego reach such enormous proportions that it has it's own gravitational pull to wondering if he's ever going to learn how to fizzbuzz correctly.

The 40 Year Old Developer

With an explosion of new frameworks, languages, and methodologies, software development is an ever-changing landscape. Sometimes, it's hard to keep up and filter out the noise from the signal. As developers get older, we want to both: Explore these new technologies and tell the new kids to get off our virtual lawn. In this session, I'll share my own experiences (struggles and victories) in being a developer at 40 and why I'm not about to give up yet.
