7 Habits of Highly Effective Developers
Thoughts lead to words, words lead to action, actions lead to habits. In this session we'll sharpen the development saw in the process of understanding what makes a hyper-productive programmer. The focus will consist of developer habits and development processes.
As described in the book "7 Habits for Highly Effective People", there are habits which are characteristic of highly effective people. Clearly there are hyper-productive developers which distinguish themselves from the development pack? what is it that makes the difference? What are the habits and practices of highly effective developers?
This session will focus on individual developer habits, as well as team practices and the processes which result in high quality running software.
