The 10X Developers, Top Talent, Rockstars. A-Players. Tradition states that these are exceptional humans, possessing talents that others do not. The good news is they are not special, they were not born great programmers. The better news is that you're not special either.
This talk is about learning to learn, putting ourselves in a place where being more awesome is inevitable. It will explore how the brain's structure changes as we internalize skills and how that can be used to build positive feedback loops. It talks about how I believe that focus itself is an acquired skill and how we can nurture that to build more grit. Finally, we explore how our perception of others effects their ability to grow.
This talk is for anybody who is dissatisfied with their code but doesn't know how to get better. It's for anybody that's afraid to ask questions or of making mistakes because they could be seen as not good enough. This talk is for anybody who wants to build a team that can get better together.
