What?! I know that sounds crazy. Think about it though, the movie stereotype of the lone developer who works in a Faraday cage is nowhere near realistic.
We are human being after all, and humans need some level of social interaction. Trust me, it is a good thing.
Jeremy Clark did a presentation at the Visual Studio Live conference I attended December of 2015. I thought it was a neat concept, and it clicked with me. I was at a conference, but if I was not with my coworkers I really was not talking to anyone. I decided to take up the challenge.
I was not alone in this decision. There were a few other developers who were going out of their way to talk to other people. It was nice, it made the conference seem more like a community.
