No matter where you’re from or what you do, everyone is biased in one way or another. People make mistakes, even if they’re too stubborn to admit to them. There’s nothing wrong with that. It's human nature and happens in systematic ways. Knowing how to recognize when you’re being biased and how to avoid this behavior is a good first step.
Full-Stack Developer Dani López has taken that first step. His presentation covers a variety of different biases and behaviors that lead people to make false assumptions and misjudgments, as well as advice on how to combat this tendency.
From confirmation and hindsight bias to the illusion of transparency and more, Dani challenges his colleagues to take a hard look at the unconscious assumptions that are part of human cognition. There are also a couple of small experiments in the presentation, so feel free to take part.
Dani is an inspirational developer with direct experience as a product owner. His unwavering drive for improvement makes him a force to be reckoned with in the programming arena. Away from his keyboard, he enjoys role-playing games.
