    Program Overview

    Every programmer can remember times when programming came easily. The lines seemed to write themselves. Time went away. And the result was exciting code, beyond what you thought your limits were. Most days aren't like this. If they were, how much value could we create? How do we find that sweet spot? We need balance for the full engagement of ourselves as programmers. We must be challenged but not overwhelmed. We must be doing work that matters, serving a purpose greater than our isolated selves, acting as a part of a team. We will explore what brings ease to our work and how to create opportunities for joyful and productive software development where you are.
