Mastering the Art of Learning in Technology

When was the last time you learned something new on the job? Making a career in technology requires constant learning. Every project offers opportunities to apply new techniques, frameworks, or hacks. Since we learn on a consistent basis, how do we learn well? This talk will explore learning techniques, guidance, and advice. We will also take a glimpse into "how" we consciously or unconsciously learn. While the talk will be centered around software development and the tech industry, concepts can be applied to just about any occupation or hobby, whether you’re new at this, or you’ve been doing this for thirty years.
