“Technology is an ever growing field.” You’ve probably heard that your whole career. Doesn’t it feel like lately it’s been growing much faster than before? Processing has been moved from the server to the client; servers have moved from closets to The Cloud; Microsoft has moved from Windows to Linux. How can you possibly keep up with all of these gigantic shifts? In this session, we will learn how the brain really works to digest new pieces of information and assimilate knowledge. There will be some psychology, there will be some humor (so long as your sense of humor lines up with mine), and above all, there will be learning. In the end, you will walk away with a better understanding of your brain and some new tactics to guide your learning in more effective ways.
