Limited Capacity seats available

We are ‘makers’. We like to get things done. The more productive we are, the happier we are. This connection between productivity and happiness has been researched in the field of positive psychology as flow: the theory that people are happiest when they are in a state of absorption with an activity, or in the zone (credit: M. Csiksgentmihalyi). Practices such as Personal Kanban, the Pomodoro technique, TDD, assertive programming, source control, continuous integration, and more, promote both individual and team flow, which in turn increases the peace of mind in their deliverables. In this highly interactive session, participants will experience first-hand (via LEGO) how these practices contribute to flow. Though some of these practices are developer-centric, the whole team (Project Managers, Testers, UX Designers, etc.) will discover how individual disciplines contribute to team peace of mind.
