Working in IT requires lifelong learning. Yesterday everyone was into Docker. Today you definitely need Kubernetes to help your client forward. IT professionals are expected to follow trainings and certify themselves, but even with years of practical experience training and certification can be difficult. Most IT people learn by doing. Learning from a training or book, and often both, can be challenging and is for some a frustrating experience. Fortunately there are ways to learn how to learn. In IT (and even in other areas) these techniques are not yet well-known. Considering how important lifelong learning is and how an inability to study impacts your live, this talk will definitely support the entire IT community. Using scientific evidence organisational psychologist Karin Oey will explain the learning process and demonstrate what effective and ineffective learning strategies are, using several real-life examples.
