Keynote: Keynote: The Art of Programming

One of the most consolidated misconceptions about programming, since the early days, is the idea that such activity is purely technical, completely exact in nature, like Math and Physics. Computation is exact, but programming is not. The first is a result of a machine operation, and the latter is still a human activity.

This talk will present programming under a different perspective, showing the importance of creativity and curiosity, among other typically underestimated traits, for building excellent developers.
