How Your Brain Works Against You

On this episode of Eat Sleep Code guest Arthur Doler discusses how our brain interprets cause and effect, the ways in which it wants to think of things as narratives, and all the tricks it does to save itself from having to think. Arthur shares his perspective on cognitive bias and how it effects the software development process.

Arthur Doler

Arthur (or Art, take your pick) has been a software engineer for 13 years and has worked on things as exciting as analysis software for casinos and things as boring as banking websites. He is an advocate for talking openly about mental health and psychology in the technical world, and he spends a lot of time thinking about how we program and why we program, and about the tools, structures, cultures, and mental processes that help and hinder us from our ultimate goal of writing amazing things. His hair is brown and his thorax is a shiny blue color.
