Keynote: Software for one. Ideas for all

In the BEAM world, we typically focus on the ways to make our system's fault tolerant, faster, or generally more reliable. This is great when you're building software for work or for a company. But there's an entirely separate class of projects out there. The kind of projects with no tests, no business plan, and only one user; yourself. Unfortunately, we typically don't share these sorts of projects, even though they often include some of our best ideas.

In this talk, we'll take a closer look at these small projects, and we'll see the profound effect they have on the way that we think about programming.
