Limited Capacity seats available

"One of the most difficult hurdles any development project will ever encounter is the decision on when to cut their losses and move on to a new approach. In this session, I will discuss the concept of the sunk-cost fallacy, how to remain aware of it, how to avoid falling into it and how to climb out of it once you are there.

I will provide several real-world examples of projects at Fedora and Red Hat that have had to make these decisions."
