Summit 2014: How to Increase Your Brain's Cache Hits? / Yaron Wittenstein
Being a professional developer requires staying up-to-date all the time.
Time is a very precious resource for us. We need to learn new programming-languages, technologies,
keep the knowledge we already have, while being expected to work fast and produce high-quality results.
We frequently find ourselves with the feeling we work slower than we could. Whether its over-googling
for things we did dozens of times in the past, using too much the mouse instead of alternative keyboard shortcuts
or searching for that famous Github repository we know exists but having hard time remembering its name.
Our brain has a cache too. In this talk we will tackle various techniques of how to increase dramatically our cache's hits
and work faster and more productive
we will address these main issues:
1. How to learn a new programming-language/lib faster and better?
2. How to remember more keyboard-shortcuts in less time?
3. How to learn from technical mistakes encountered during coding?
