What's the reason why we tend to have strong opinions about certain technical subjects with no shades of gray? We experience cognitive distortions and biases.
In this presentation, Raquel takes us on a journey along different technical subjects (pull requests, branching, TDD, pair programming, OOP vs. FP, documentation, ...), because travelling opens our mind, makes us better people and helps us to consider things from new perspectives.
Raquel discovered her profession when she was 12 years old, when playing with databases and DOS commands in the back office of a computer shop. She keeps as a treasure her notebook with a computer architecture and how data were stored in a diskette among other things.
She loves new challenges and finds it very difficult to choose a single favourite area in her profession. For the past 10 years Raquel has worked in different projects, with different technologies, and in different industries. She lives and breathes business and values from her software products, services and ideas.
Raquel is a constant apprentice who strives for common sense, pragmatism and simplicity, and also enjoys sharing her knowledge and learning from others.All author posts
