Focusing in a Distracted World

A session at Forward 3 Web Technology Summit

Wednesday 29th July, 2015

12:30pm to 12:50pm (PST)

The modern day work environment. Cubicles have been replaced with open work spaces. Meeting rooms get turned into war rooms. We get bombarded with notifications from our computers and connected devices like phones, tablets, and smart watches. Week after week our days are filled with meaningful interruptions along with time sucking distractions. How do we ever get work done? Dealing with distractions at work can be difficult for anyone, but toss in ADHD and those distractions become magnified. Larry Gordon will walk you through his experience of being a software engineer with ADHD and will highlight some of the techniques and strategies that helps him stay productive and focused throughout the day.
