About the speaker:
Jan Kettner / Careem
I wanted to be a writer because I did not want to work. But since I did not want to work I did not succeed as a writer. So I became a developer instead, because being lazy can be a good trait for a developer. Most of my career I have been working in Mobile Development. The question what defines good code and how to build good software drives me and any pointers are welcome.
