Healthy Programming

Joe Kutner, author of The Healthy Programmer, will be presenting. He writes:

To keep doing what you love, you need to maintain your own systems, not just the ones you write code for. Your health affects your ability to learn, remember, concentrate, and be creative--skills critical to doing your job well. But working out at the gym might not be enough to stay healthy if you spend the rest of the day sitting in front of a computer. Some surprising new science has revealed that the lifestyle most commonly associated with programming can actually counteract the benefits of exercise.

In this talk you'll learn how to change your work habits, boost your brainpower, master exercises that make working at a computer more comfortable, and develop a plan to stay fit, healthy, and sharp for years to come.

 

EDIT:  Contrary to prior meetings at this location, food will not be provided.  Feel free to bring a lunch to munch on though.   Drinks will be provided as usual.  I promise this is not because of the topic being presented.
