BJ Burns is a Full Stack .Net Developer, Certified SCRUM Developer, Certified SCRUM Master, Meetup Organizer, and 1/2 of the Complete Developer Podcast. BJ first became interested in computers with his first experience using DOS prompt to play Oregon Trail in the computer lab at his elementary school. He began programming in high school when he took a class on QBasic. For him coding was a hobby, something he did for fun until a few years ago when he left medicine and decided to pursue a career as a developer.
The world of medicine has a process for reviewing failure and looking for ways to prevent it from happening again. Failure is all to common in development, whether you are building a traditional waterfall project or using the newest agile techniques. In this talk we'll discuss how to apply what the medical community does to our projects and sprints. We'll look at common causes of failure that apply across projects, how failure effects developers and changes team dynamics, and ways to learn from failure to prevent it happening again.
