Feedback: how I survived for 10 years in the world of software and IT consulting companies

During this session, I will share with you what I experienced during the 10 years I spent in the world of software and IT consulting companies. This story begins on September 1st 2009, the day I started as a trainee in a small software enginering services company. From dev to technical lead, passing through the project manager's box, we will briefly see the main milestones of my progression. But we'll mostly focus on the many anecdotes from firefighter missions to risky projects with high added value :). This session will present the main flaws that I have identified and will eventually provide some recommendations. Finally, we will see how the story ended on May 6, 2019.
