Practicing to be Perfect

Athletes practice with no crowds. Musicians often practice alone. When do developers, designers and other knowledge workers practice? Do you type functions and code repetitively? Do you design UIs and UX that you throw away?
In this talk, developers, designers and product owners will learn about why deliberate practice can improve your performances -- err, pull requests. We'll talk about why and how athletes, comedians and musicians practice before they perform and why technology companies may need similar routines. We'll discuss technologies and approaches for incorporating practice into team settings. So that you find your own fun methods of practice and improvement.
