barCampNYC – Internationalizing Software – David Czarneicki

David Czarneicki of blojsom tells attendees about internationalization of software. Admittedly it was either too technically based for me, or too generic.

This doesn't mean I don't understand the greater whole that the triumvirate express together so well. It means that my self-admitted mindset and bias focuses my attention ...
