Exploiting the Brain for Fun & Profit


Comments are closed.

Fascinating talk, very well-presented. Lots of great content about how to get the most out of our brains. Very relevant both to people in general and developers in particular. Well done.

Absolutely wonderful talk. I knew most of the stuff going in to this talk and for those that attended I can tell you from 1st hand experience that it works.

I caught the last half but everything that I heard was good. It was presented well also.

Very cool talk on self care and making sure that you are maximizing your physical/mental potential in your workspace.

Spoiler alert: She makes you run in place.

Interesting talk, and paced well for the end of the day.

My faaaaavorite talk of the conference! There's so much great advice for improving one's lifestyle that leads to enabling them as a better programmer and human. Keeping people engaged by making them physically interact was brilliant--it worked incredibly well for me and I didn't see anyone NOT engaged.

You dealt well with audience members wanting to share their own ideas! I've seen other speakers crash and burn and lose control of the room but you let them talk and moved on. Very well done!

Good talk with some actionable steps and information that could be applied almost immediately.
