Are you a good Code Scout?

50 minute beginner seminar

Description/Proposal

Scouts are taught to be adventurous, considerate, thoughtful, effective, diligent, ingenious, thorough, earnest and effective… And we should be teaching Software Devs to do the same

This talk intends to prove that being a Good Scout and being a Great developer are are pretty much the same thing. It will take you through the types of actions and attitudes that are taught to millions of kids aged seven to eighteen and compare it to what you should be practising every day to make you a better Developer and in doing so I show you everything you need to earn your very first Code Scout badge.
