The Art of Disciplined Creativity in Software Development

There is no shortage of projects that necessitate our ingenuity in the software development industry. Unfortunately, although we all have moments of being lit up with creativity, often the time of being in the state of productive creative flow is all too short, and our projects suffer for it.

Much like elite athletes, software developers need to exercise discipline to be able to get into the “zone” at will and consistently produce great results. In this workshop we’ll explore ideas and practices for regularly gathering sources of inspiration, and how to more easily get into and prolong creativitely productive states, and leverage them to generate and execute excellent work and be even more awesome at what we do.
