We are excited to be hosting the St. Pete .Net Meetup again!
The group will meet Tuesday, August 7th at the Suncoast Developers Guild campus. Doors will open at 6:30pm and the presentations will begin sharply at 7:00 pm. Along with a great presentation, they will have food and raffle prizes. Be sure to RSVP so they know how much food is needed.
Deliberate Practice for Programmers
In this talk I'll be discussing the modern science of deliberate practice, popularized in recent books like "Peak", "Practice Perfect", "Grit" and "Blink". I'll highlight the best lessons from these sources and from other professions and focus on how they can be applied to software engineering. After introducing the topic, I'll go over some concrete and easily measurable examples of how to improve. Then I'll spend the rest of the time looking at how other professions cope with skills that are not so easy to measure and show how we can adapt those practices for software engineering.
