So you have selected the best possible programming language; you learned about object oriented design, functional paradigmas, test driven development and the Structure and interpretation of computer programs.
What else can you do? Harald did research and experimented outside computer sciences. What methods and substances are available to tune your brain for programming? This talk will describe personal experiences with various motivational, self discipline, learning and information management techniques; substances and exercises to tune your brains operating system. There will be expeditions into results from brain research. A critical judgement, pointing out snake oil and stuff that worked.
