Central Florida Software Symposium
August 24 - 26, 2007 - Orlando, FL
KEYNOTE: No, I Won't Tell You Which Web Framework to Use: or The Truth (with Jokes)
"Which framework should I use?" is the question most often heard on the No Fluff, Just Stuff tour. It's well worth asking. Unfortunately, there is no simple answer. After years on the tour, most speakers have crafted a response that would make any Washington politician proud -- long on style, but essentially, "Well, it depends..."
In this humorous keynote, Scott Davis turns to unconventional sources for enlightenment. Could best-sellers like Blink, Freakonomics, The Tipping Point, The Paradox of Choice, and The Wisdom of Crowds finally solve the puzzle? In this "Da Vinci Code"-like romp through the conventional wisdom of the day, will the Holy Grail of web frameworks be revealed? Probably not, but possible side effects may include nausea, dry mouth, and insight into the eternal question of our industry.
