Learn Reflect Repeat


Published on

As developers, we’re constantly learning: whether it’s figuring out how to solve new problems and bugs, or focusing on new skills and knowledge to apply to our work. At FutureLearn, we reflect our company mission of providing the best learning experiences to everyone, within the way we work as well. We have a culture of learning and supporting each other, encouraging everyone to pursue the skills they want to have. This talk will help you make learning a more integral part of your processes, and explain how to run internal events, like hackdays and lightning talks, to support this.

See the video of the talk here:

  15. 15. Failure Embrace
  16. 16. “Many people think it means accept failure with dignity and move on. The better, more subtle interpretation is that failure is a manifestation of learning and exploration. If you aren’t experiencing failure, then you are making a far worse mistake: You are being driven by the desire to avoid it.” ~ Ed Catmull, Creativity, Inc.
  17. 17. Questions There Are No Stupid
  18. 18. “every question is a cry to understand the world.” ~ Carl Sagan
  19. 19. Trust People The Right Thing To Do
  20. 20. “Trusting others doesn’t mean that they won’t make mistakes. It means that if they do (or if you do), you trust they will act to help solve it.” ~ Ed Catmull, Creativity, Inc.
  21. 21. Treat People Grownups Like
  22. 22. "If you treat an individual as he is, he will remain how he is. But if you treat him as if he were what he ought to be and could be, he will become what he ought to be and could be." ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
  23. 23. Don’t Focus On Job Titles
  24. 24. "If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. " ~ Mahatma Gandhi
  25. 25. Give Constructive Feedback
  26. 26. Feedback: I don’t like your commit messages. Constructive feedback: Your commit messages should explain the value of your changes, rather than just focusing on the implementation details. Have you tried describing the problem you’re trying to solve and the context behind it?

  49. 49. “There are two parts to any failure: There is the event itself, with all its attendant disappointment, confusion, and shame, and then there is our reaction to it. It is this second part that we control. Do we become introspective, or do we bury our heads in the sand? Do we make it safe for others to acknowledge and learn from problems, or do we shut down discussion by looking for people to blame? ” ~ Ed Catmull, Creativity, Inc.
