You don’t need training. AIs can be trained. Monkeys can be trained. Instead, you need to learn how to learn.
Programmers have to learn all the time—not just the obvious new technology, new programming languages, and new frameworks, but new ways of working. Learning how the evolving system under development behaves. Learning how your teammates behave—or don’t. Learning your market, your organization’s changing priorities, and more. You need to cut through the thicket of nonsense and make sense of user’s needs, technological swamps, and organizational traps.
You need critical thinking skills, and better ways to learn and think.
In this workshop, you’ll journey through bits of cognitive science, neuroscience, and learning and behavioral theory. You’ll see surprising aspects of how our brains work and see how you can beat the system to improve your own learning and thinking skills.
We’re going to begin to refactor your wetware—redesign and rewire your brain—to make you more effective at your job. Whether you’re a programmer, manager, “knowledge worker”, technogeek, or deep thinker, or if you just happen to have a human brain you’d like to crank up, this workshop will help.
“By following Andy’s concrete steps, you can make your most precious asset—your brain—more efficient and productive. You’ll think smarter, work better, and learn more than ever before.” —Bert Bates, co-creator of the Head First series of brain-friendly books
