Web Directions Conferences for web and digital professionals

Video Ristretto: Checklist Driven Development, Jeremy Nagel

Atul Gawande is an American surgeon, a writer for the esteemed New Yorker magazine, and author of “The Checklist Manifesto“. The book has started something of a revolution in medicine, by introducing an idea pioneered by pilots, the use of checklists to prepare for operations and other medical procedures.

It’s an idea that has broad applicability (the book looks at various fields of endeavour and their use of checklists) and at Web Directions 2015 in our engineering track, Jeremy Nagel talked about how he has applied these ideas to development.

One of my favourite sessions in a long while, well worth 20 minutes of your time.
