Do you ever have those days where it seems like your thoughts just wander all over the place? Do you ever have one of those days where it seems like you are unstoppable while developing? The difference between those days is simply a different level of focus.
Meditation is a time tested practice that allows us to improve our focus. As we improve our focus, we improve our ability to work more efficiently. As we work more efficiently, the quality of our work improves.
This talk will explain who, what, where, why, how and when of meditation in everyday terms. It will present some information about how our brain works. It will explain why focus is so important in the connected world we live in. It will present some simple steps that anyone can follow to improve their focus. Finally, it will try to convince all in attendance that developing software can benefit from a simple meditation practice.
