Software development happens in your head; not in an editor, IDE, or design tool. We're well educated on how to work with software and hardware, but what about wetware – our own brains?
Join Andy Hunt for a look at how the brain really works and how to think differently about thinking. You'll get a brief recap of the Dreyfus Model (from his popular talk "Herding Racehorses and Racing Sheep") and explore practical learning techniques including mind maps, reading techniques, and situational feedback. We'll also examine how to best cope with the literal torrent of new information that assaults each of us, using methods ranging from the tried-and-true to the truly exotic.
