7 Habits of Highly Effective Developers

Featured Speaker: Devlin Liles

We have all come across those great developers in our careers. They seem to fall into the right answer and make it look so easy to deliver great quality software so quickly. The true is though it is not an innate ability but the application of many deliberate practices. Those practices include some that help to avoid distraction, staying blocked to long, break down problems, and many others. In many years of developing software in teams I have realized that we can learn new practices from just about everyone. In this talk we will look at the 7 most important practices I have found and adopted. This talk with have a technical tilt and some code, but will have value for anyone working with developers.
