Announcement: Richard Hale Shaw Seminar in Ann Arbor

On Friday May 27th, we’re hosting Richard Hale Shaw for two new seminars: “Habits of Successful Software Developers”, and “On Time and Under Budget: How to Stop Missing – and Start Meeting – Software Project Deadlines.”

Richard has been a good friend, colleague, and mentor for a long time. I’ve learned a lot from him over the years. He was a driving force behind the growth in Ann Arbor’s software development community, founded the Ann Arbor Computer Society, and helped many of us advance and accept new challenges. (He helped me get my first two writing contracts, including my first recurring column.)

I have always respected his opinions and I’m thrilled to see him taking on software engineering and development process topics in this new seminars. These seminars will make you a better developers, regardless of the technology stack, programming language, or platform you choose.

From the conversations I’ve had with Richard, I’m convinced these seminars will help every developer do their job better. We’re happy to host Richard, and grateful that he’s coming back to Ann Arbor to do these seminars.
