Interview with Katrina Owen at Codemotion Berlin 2019
About
Katrina Owen delivered the talk "Cultivating Instinct" during the conference Codemotion Berlin 2019. We interviewed Katrina asking her these questions: What is the difference between experts and novices within a software development team? What is perceptual learning? Why and how can it be useful to team leaders or CTOs? In your bio, you state that you “accidentally became a developer while pursuing a degree in molecular biology”. How difficult was to follow such a different path? What are the main factors that helped you in this choice?
