How to Be a More Productive Developer

A session at Frozen Rails 2012

Friday 21st September, 2012

2:30pm to 3:00pm (HMT)

Developers are a unique breed of people. We're highly intelligent, creative, problem solvers who have a unique and powerful set of skills. We are often passionate, determined and confident and we love challenges. But we can also be obsessive, difficult to manage and perfectionists. We can get caught up in solving problems that distract us from what we should be doing. We can be isolated and insular.

This presentation will look at who we are as developers and how to get the most from our unique skills. We will look at the areas that we can be weak in, and how we can avoid pitfalls of those areas. We will also look at how we differ from designers, managers, marketers and other types of people we may work with, and how we can work best with them.

This will be an interactive presentation where we build a picture of the average developer in the room.

We will look at:

  • What makes developers special?
  • How can we be more productive?
  • Why do we spend so much time on open source?
  • How can we work better with other developers?
  • How can we work better with non-developers?
  • Why are we so often entrepreneurs?
