Software delivery is a creative process chock-full of problem solving and continuous learning. The better we can solve these problems and learn these lessons, the better we can deliver value and positive outcomes.

Cognitive load, the amount of work that our brain is doing at any given time, is a key factor in our ability to solve new problems and learn new things. The Cloud Foundry community has worked hard to ease a developer’s cognitive load, providing straightforward developer experiences on an opinionated platform that abstracts away as much as possible and enables engineers to focus on the delivery of business value.

But the developer experience is more than just the interactions between the developer and the platform. Join Anouska Streets in exploring the work of “The Godfather of Cognitive Load Theory” John Sweller and other academics, discover what happens inside our brains when we have problems to solve and new things to learn, and learn what we can do as individuals and technology leaders to build upon these insights and maximise the focus of our engineers on the delivery of real value.

Anouska is Head of Platform at Currencycloud, a global payments platform built on smart technology that takes the complexity out of moving money. Leading the Cloud Platform team, Anouska drives the development and adoption of the internal Cloud Platform, enabling Currencycloud engineers to rapidly, safely, securely and sustainably build cloud native services, ultimately providing our customers with business value that delights them and their end consumers.
