Software on the road: the journey

  • Lightning talk
  • Developer's life

Have you wondered how would it be to quit your job, take a backpack, and be on the road 24/7? How does it relate with status quo?

Through a continuous stream of audiovisual material captured during his trip, Dani takes you into an inspiring journey visiting local communities, sharing good vibes & crafting software.

6 months and 13 countries later, having hitch-hiked in the Albanian mountains, philosophized with a jewelry crafter in Mallorca, danced to reggae in Jamaica and couchsurfed all over the place, he's back to share part of his adventures with us.

In short, he just wants to spread happiness around. Are you in?
