I did not attend the NDC (New Developers Conference) in Oslo 2014. I decided to create a watchlist because I didn’t want to miss the best sessions from this year’s conference. This is a completely subjective watchlist narrowed down to what’s interesting for me today.

NDC Oslo 2014

I’m pretty sure there are interesting sessions for nearly every single developer. I, therefore, want to mention that all the 158 sessions recorded can be watched completely free of charge.

The following list links to fifteen sessions which attracted me the most.
