Cross Domain Hacking: Life Lessons Applied to Software

Cory Flanigan | 10:00 – 11:15


Stagnation is the quiet enemy of progress. It adds friction to our problem solving process and limits our ability to innovative and discover new ideas. In order to grow as individuals and as a community, we must expand our horizons. Let’s challenge ourselves and stretch our limits by exploring ways of distilling lessons from other domains in order to apply their wisdom to our practice. Plus, as the title suggests, we will be discussing some delicious eats! You don’t want to miss out on this one.


A developer at Groupon in Denver, CO, Cory spends most days practicing software craft by collaborating on things like open source projects, code retreats, and community meetups. Working primarily with Ruby, current areas of focus are apprenticeship/mentorship, principles of functional programming, and TDD as an interface design approach.
