Keynote: The Importance of Fun in the Workplace

An in-depth look at what makes software development a roller coaster where the highs of 0 compiler warnings are quickly cancelled out by the pain of long hours, bad requirements, endless configuration, clueless managers and a plethora of other issues which make death by a thousand cuts seem like a good idea.

They will answer questions such as: "Why is programming often called an art despite having its underpinnings in formal logic?" "How can I rediscover the delight I felt when I first started coding?” “What’s that rush I feel when my test passes? Am I addicted to TDD?"

Combining Psychology, Philosophy and Computer Science, Dr Holly Cummins will present a series of practical tips to help you rediscover the euphoria that you felt the very first time a metal box in front of you came to life and cried out "Hello World".
