Gone are the days of the stereotypical developer; one single person, typing furiously in a dark room, drinking copious amounts of caffeine. The caffeine part hasn't changed, but the rest of the experience has. No matter what role we take on in the tech industry, we are dependent on the help, knowledge and experience of others. Our output is the product of several minds coming together. This talk will focus not only on WHY it's so important to work together, but also HOW to work together.
