Cyber Dojo – Jon Jagger – Agile on the Beach Conference 2017 – Software Development

Enjoy Jon Jagger’s session from Agile On The Beach 2017 titled ‘Cyber-dojo’.

In this session Jon

Do you write code every day? Do you ever ask yourself why you write code every day? Your answer will be something to do with implementing some feature, maybe with tests, or fixing some bug, mostly working alone, for some company, to some deadline. And that’s fine. But there is another way.

This session from Jon Jagger looks at the principles of experiential deliberate practice applied to software development. A normal integrated development environment (IDE) is designed for production and has many features designed to help you go faster. We don’t want to go faster. We want to go slower. We want to go more deliberately.

Watch this session to learn how to code in cyber-dojo, a highly constrained, custom designed, minimal, ‘non-development’ environment, designed to maximise learning. Work 100% test-driven. Work with pair programming and work in short timeboxes. The results? You will experience effective code reviews and you will apply your chosen learning from each iteration in the next iteration.
