Matt Barcomb discusses “amplifying learning”, focusing on setting up learning environments and common organizational pitfalls. Filmed at qconsf.com.

Matt Barcomb (@mattbarcomb) is passionate about building collaborative, cross-functional teams. Matt started programming as a wee lad and eventually wound up getting paid for it. It took him nearly 10 years before he realized that the "people problem" was the biggest issue facing most software development. (blog.risingtideharbor.com)
