Your brain is the one essential key piece of technology you must use each time you perform any development activity. You learned how to walk, talk, think, and code. If your want to be an Olympic Runner, World Class Speaker, or White Hat Hacker, you know it takes a lot more time, commitment, focused learning, sometimes coaching, than just learning the basics. But what kind of training can you get for your brain? While there are many different strategies we could discuss, I’ll introduce you to the art and science, as well as ongoing research into, ‘In-The-Zone’, as experienced in the work environment.
Please take the following survey before the meeting: this link is no longer available
When you leave, you will know:
- Five very different types of ‘In-The-Zone ‘, their causes, and the two types commonly found among software engineers.
- What conditions must be met before you can enter the Zone.
- What events will likely pull you out of the Zone.
- You will also be able to better identify when you or someone else is in the Zone.
- Things you can do to develop more control of your own Zone further.
