Codemotion Milan 2016: thoughts

I have never written a review on a conference and this isn't one: this is a brain dump (hence the lack of form and structure) that I quite simply needed to get out here. It might be incomplete, biased or what else: if there is anything that I should know then let me know in the comments. If you think I'm wrong then let me know that too, but please elaborate :-).

Last week I was, for the first time, at Codemotion in Milan. A first time doubly so: I had never been to a generalist conference before. Being I a generalist person I appreciated the format, even though I found some of the technical talks too light on actual details.

The talks that I liked the most were those of the inspirational track. I went to thesetwo among others and I heartly recommend that you watch them (heck, have all your team watch them!). Maybe because I'm old and I have recently realized that people matter more than tools or technologies?
Overall I would rate the conference an 8 out of 10 just for tho…
