The most well-known developers have something in common: they’re productive. Usually, it isn’t just dumb luck. More often than not, they’ve focused on becoming more productive.
There are dozens of methodologies that claim to increase productivity, but there’s a clear winner amongst highly productive software developers: Getting Things Done (GTD). GTD, originally described in productivity guru David Allen’s best seller of the same title, describes a set of behaviors which, when followed regularly, reduce stress and help you become more productive at the same time. While GTD works for anyone who qualifies as an “information worker”, this session looks at how programmers, architects, and technical managers can apply GTD principles to improve the productivity of individuals and the group as a whole.
