About the session

Practice doesn't make perfect! Perfect practice makes perfect.

Professional athletes and musicians focus on practising to get better so that the quality of their work becomes effortless. Why aren't you and your team practising to get better?

Applying the concepts of Learned Behaviorism, using the techniques of Deliberate Practice, and simple "tools" like Code Katas can result in a more knowledgeable team that produces higher-quality code at a more rapid pace.

In this talk, you’ll learn the concepts of Deliberate Practice and Learning-Performance Distinction and how to facilitate learning opportunities to ensure the best outcomes.

Participant takeaways:

  • Understand the concepts of Deliberate Practice and Learning-Performance Distinction.
  • Learn how to effectively practice with tools like Code Katas and Sparrow Decks
  • Understand the outcomes that learning as a group will bring to the team, and how to expand those outcomes to more than just developers.
