Boost your learning with Deliberate Practice
Are you wondering what Deliberate Practice involves, and how to apply it to daily learning? This talk will showcase how Deliberate Practice helped our speaker, Yifeng, learn software engineering, Ping Pong and more. Yifeng believes that when you understand how to use Deliberate Practice, you can choose to apply it to any field you find interesting to boost learning. Continuous learning is a main theme of the 21st century. It is especially true for a fast-changing industry like the IT industry. To address the demand for faster learning, one process called "Deliberate Practice" has proven to improve the efficiency of learning. With Deliberate Practice, it can take less time to achieve learning goals than normal practice. Moreover, the beauty of Deliberate Practice is that it nearly applies to all fields of study, like sports, music and even software engineering. Yifeng Hou Yifeng has worked at Pivotal Labs for 2.5 years and worked on 10+ projects. Each project has had a new engineering tech stack and new product domain for Yifeng to learn. Yifeng has successfully applied Deliberate Practice to make her learning on these projects faster. Additionally, Yifeng has seen improvements not only with software engineering, but also other aspects of her life. For example, Yifeng has applied Deliberate Practice to improve her Ping Pong playing, drum playing and more.
