This talk is a celebration of the letter F as regards to software formation. From his first feats in forming friction free software, Josh has been fanatically fighting the furious fight for first class software. This talk is a free flowing fantastic flurry of fulmination about being fearful of failure, focusing on the fixed, forcing feedback and much more… So consider yourself forewarned.

This talk was first delivered in Edinburgh at #WhiskyWeb
