Developing Your Soft Skills

Soft skills are getting more and more important on the workfloor. Developers however forget to practice these a lot and often do not even know how to practice these. With this workshop we will go over some exercises and drills each of us can do to improve our soft skills. Not only theoretically but also in practice. Active participation required!

No laptop will be needed and there will be no development. Instead, we're going to focus on soft skills that matter most to developers. Teamwork, communication exercises and problem-solving quizzes will be the main focus. We hope to help stimulate developers to focus on the soft skills more and more and become better at what they do in their zone, programming.

I think “soft skills” are extremely under-rated among developers yet are the most important things when working as a team. The session was great, got me out of my comfort zone, and taught me some good ways to challenge myself to become a better communicator. I would have liked some practice on having difficult conversations within the session but I spoke to Kenneth about this afterwards. Enjoyable and recommended.
