I Knew Better Than That! Lessons Learned the Hard Way

Location: Engineering Theater

Date: Wednesday, May 15

Time: 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Track: Engineering Theater

Vault Recording: TBD

Experience leads to good decisions - everyone knows that. But we sometimes forget that a lot of what we know came from
doing the wrong thing and learning lessons the hard way. We want to forget the lesions from the lessons. Instead of forgetting those occasions, I propose we talk about them! It's good to be reminded of important lessons, and if others hear them,
they may benefit without getting the scars. In this session, firmware engineer Randy Leberknight will talk about some hard learned lessons he has learned over the years and then open the discussion to the audience in order to learn from each other, and perhaps laugh at some old mistakes. Come prepared with your own stories!
