This presentation is about fear, and how fear can effect how I make decisions in my career as a programmer. My hope is to challenge you, and that you would challenge me with ideas on how we can conquer fear, how we can make our projects better, our teams stronger, our industry more valuable, and encourage each other to become better people.

Ever experienced the pain of a God class? I have some theories on how you can, among many things, conquer even the God class.
