Touching Grass: How NOT Developing Makes Us Better Devs
Speaker: Cori Lint

Level: Intermediate (some prior knowledge necessary)
Length: Shorty (30-35 minutes)

Description:
What do food service, music performance, teaching, and playing sports have to do with software development? They all require the “soft skills” we look for in a developer: empathy, focus, attention to detail, communication, problem solving, decision making, and more. This talk explores what we can learn from other industries, why we should hire career changers, and how our interests and hobbies outside of tech make us better developers.
