Mindfulness is increasingly being shown by the scientific community to increase our: resilience in the face of difficult situations, ability to fight infection, mental clarity, and overall happiness. It’s no surprise, since programmers use their minds almost exclusively and must usually work with other people, that we would recommend mindfulness as an important tool for becoming amazing software craftspeople.
We are interested in figuring this out. In the future, perhaps a training curriculum on the core stances of a software craftsperson might be forthcoming. Watch this space to see what we come up with next!
