Branden Schwartz talks with Dave Rael about confidence, parenting, trying things even though you may not be ready, and gratitude

Branden Schwartz is a developer whose experience with the Microsoft tech stack predates the .NET framework. He lives just outside of Chattanooga, Tennessee, where he is active in the developer community as a member of the local chapter of PASS (Professional Association for SQL Server) and one of the organizers of both the Chattanooga Area .NET User Group and the Scenic City Summit conference. Away from the keyboard, he is a proud godfather and foster parent, gamer and movie enthusiast, husband and cat caretaker.

Branden's top 3 tips for delivering more value:
  1. Understand your problem domain
  2. Adhere to the "5 minute rule" - when struggling, take a 5-minute break and take opportunities to invest 5-minutes in enhancing understanding
  3. Nature abhors a vacuum, and so do requirements - implement something and show it to help in fleshing out requirements
