Talk @ Agile Southgate – “How to win friends and influence computers”

Today I spoke at Agile Southgate. My talk was titled – “How to win friends and influcence computers”.

The purpose of the talk was to give non-developers the understanding of programming basics in a way that would be simple to understand.
I tried to do that using the (overused) analogy of a computer program as a recipe but also using other examples – e.g. “Variables are just buckets”.
I also tried to use audience participation in order to make the examples I described feel more real to the audience.

Here are the slides – video to follow.
