Learn Better Together (SCNA 2016 Los Angeles)

No matter your profession, learning is essential: all industries and markets grow and change over time. For software developers, not only is the world changing all around us, but the tools in our hands are constantly evolving. You may have heard that "learning is the bottleneck" on software projects. I'd like to talk about how we learn not as individuals, but as teams. In this talk I'll share some fresh ideas for learning new technical skills together and leveraging some common Agile principles to reinforce group learning.

Presented at Software as a Craft North America conference October 21, 2016.
