Summary



What responsibility do developers have for the consequences of their code? Liz Abinante joins the show to talk about overlooked consequences, big and small, and what you can do if you find your self being asked to do something you think is unethical. Along the way, we talk about user data, the cloud, making career choices you are comfortable with, and why you should always go to Canadian college engineering conferences when asked.
