About the talk
RailsConf 2019 - Getting Unstuck: Strategies For Solving Difficult Problems by Steven Hicks
Even with the simplest of problems, we can get stuck on code. It happens to engineers of all experience levels. This session will show you many strategies for getting unstuck.
We'll start by reframing the act of getting stuck as a positive. Then we'll talk about many strategies for identifying the problem and moving on. We'll discuss the psychology behind these strategies, and answer questions like "Why do my best ideas come to me in the shower?" Finally, we'll look at ways to harden yourself for the next time you get stuck.
Getting unstuck is a skill. This session will help you sharpen that skill, and prepare you for the next time you want to throw your keyboard out a window.
