Do you ever have those days when it seems like your thoughts just wander all over the place? Do you ever have those days when it seems like you are unstoppable while developing? The difference between those days is simply a different level of focus.
Meditation is a time tested practice that allows us to improve our focus. As we improve our focus, we improve our ability to work more efficiently. As we work more efficiently, the quality of our work improves.
This talk — by Mike Gehard, Senior Software Engineer at Pivotal Labs — will explain who, what, where, why, how and when of meditation in everyday terms. It will present some information about how our brains works. It will explain why focus is so important in the connected world we live in. It will present some simple steps that anyone can follow to improve their focus. Finally, it will try to convince all in attendance that developing software can benefit from a simple meditation practice.
