Learning Through Tinkering
Do you feel that pet projects are a waste of time? Maybe you started on one but then stopped because you didn’t see enough progress? Quite possibly you have no idea where to start? You are not alone!
It’s a shame so many pet project ideas end up abandoned! ”Just for fun” projects can drive you towards greater knowledge, spark creativity and inspire you to become better developers. All of this without a pesky Product Owner or Manager telling you what to do!
In this talk we will look at some of the major hurdles we all face when tinkering on a pet project:
- Finding Something To Do;
- Defining What You Want To Learn;
- Avoid Burning Out and Quiting;
- Involving Other People;
- Getting Your Company on Board;
If you have been struggling to keep your pet project on track, be sure to bring your story! Together we can learn how to make your pet projects a success so you can get the most out of your tinkering!
