Wired to Learn – Tactics for Being a Better Learner with Jim Christopher


Join the Enterprise Developers Guild and me on Tuesday, October 24, at 6:00 PM in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) of the Microsoft Charlotte Office. Learning is an active process. It’s something in which you take part, not something that “just happens” to you. As with anything that requires limited resources, there are ways you can get a more significant return on your investment. This session will convey specific tactics that individuals can employ to become more efficient at learning and retaining information — techniques gleaned from disciplines like psychology, cognitive science, machine learning, physics, forensics, and even metallurgy.

The meeting presenter is Jim Christopher.

Jim Christopher has over 20 years of professional software development experience in aerospace, defense, education, gaming, communications, and IT. He has an MA in Cognitive Psychology from the University of Arizona, where he researched perception, learning, memory, and sensory prosthesis. Jim is a Director of Technology Curriculum at Pluralsight, curating Data Professional and Developer content. He likes to crochet, walk his dog, and build tiny houses.
