Trespassing The Forgotten and Abandoned: Ethics in Software Development
Let me guess what you think. You think you are smart, you think you do a good job and you think you really love software development. You think you can program 24 hours a day if you are able to do so. You also think that software development is a profession and you are a member of such a huge great community. You feel proud of what you are belonging to. At this point I am sure that only a very few of you do your profession under the lights of ethics in software development. As in every professions, software development has a common set of ethical values, behaviors and rules. That might be the most forgotten and abandoned area in our profession and my main goal is to trespass it in this session.
