LOLWTF was yesterday. Today we learn from failures – both our own and those of others.
Failures are frowned upon and we don’t talk much about them. We’d rather cover something up, than to speak about it and share it. Many developers – regardless of whether their software is open-source or proprietary – don’t talk about their failures. This needs to change. Open-source developers who work on projects that affect everybody are usually ridiculed and criticized whenever security vulnerabilities are published. This doesn’t just hurt the community, but also the backers of the projects.
Software errors are unavoidable. This track is dedicated to those who have experience with failures, so that others can learn from their mistakes and experiences . Please speak about your shipwrecked projects and about your failures – you will be the bravest participants the event.
