Star Trek, NATO, and kids party games; all of these things have one thing in common, communications. As a developer, learning to properly communicate is second only to learning to code in importance. Many of us however, learn to communicate our ideas long after we learn to code.

In this opening talk, we'll discuss four important lessons to learn if you want to be able to properly and efficiently communicate your ideas with others.

Come join us for "Apple, Butter, Darmok: A communications primer for developers"

A great way to start the conference with an excellent keynote on empathy, communication and how to be better at both.

Awesome talk with a clear message that developers need to communicate our ideas in a known language while taking the time to listen and understand our peers.

Great way to start a conference off, getting shouted at in Klingon. ;)

I was so glad to see the focus on soft skills, and specifically "communication", as the topic for this conference.

Cal started things off with a great start. Very polished speaker, easy to listen to

This speech didn't seem as relevant specifically to developers as the description indicated, but I did like the humor and the focus on an underappreciated, undervalued skill in our line of work. Loved the Star Trek jokes; well chosen.
