5:30-6:30pm Llewellyn Falco - Strong Style Pair Programming

Abstract:

“I get by with a little help from my friends” - John & Paul

How do you get the best out of yourself? How can you get the best out of a team?

It turns out, the worst version of myself shows up when I’m alone.

Let’s look at how working with others directly can get better results, introduce new ideas, and spark creativity.

Note: While this talk is tangentially about programming, most of the stories are about working with others to bring out the best of us in any context.

Speaker Bio:
Llewellyn Falco is an independent agile coach. He discovered strong-style pair programming. He is the creator of the open-source testing tool ApprovalTests( www.approvaltests.com ). He spends most of his time programming in Java and C# specializing in improving legacy code. He is the co-founder of TeachingKidsProgramming.org & co-author of Mob Programming Guidebook
