A Matter of Survival: What Wilderness Survival Can Teach Us About Software Dev.

  • May 7, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Presenter: Michael Kelly

In a book titled Deep Survival: Who Lives, Who Dies, and Why, Lawrence Gonzales explores the qualities of individuals and groups who survive under extraordinary conditions. This presentation asserts that there are similarities between an extended trek through the woods and software development, and that the qualities that enable one to survive in the woods can help us to be more successful in our projects. Along the way, it borrows from recent research in Neuroscience, Psychology, and Systems Science to provide some understanding about how and why fostering these qualities might be helpful.
