We developers are a different breed. Stereotypes aside, personality test data shows that many developers do experience life differently than most others. The same could be said for many other creatives. It’s no surprise, then, that communication difficulties are common in our field. After a candid peer review highlighted my own poor communication skills, I reached out to project managers, designers, clients, and other developers for insight and advice. These insights not only helped me improve, they revealed some surprisingly common frustrations with developers in general. I hope to share what I’ve learned to spread peace and harmony to developers and non-developers alike in the workplace. While this talk centers on developer communication dynamics, the subject matter is relevant to anyone; developers, non-developers, agency workers, and freelancers alike.
