Good developers know about abstractions, and that choosing the right abstraction is vital to writing good code. But great developers (and product owners alike) know that choosing the right abstraction, the right way of thinking, is vital to staffing, design, prioritization, and everything —and sometimes your brain needs more refactoring than your code. This talk is about the invisible mental abstractions you didn’t realize you were using, and how to exploit them for fun and profit.

David Edwards is a software engineer with Pivotal Labs. He graduated from Stanford University, having worked on an interdisciplinary major between the computer science, psychology, linguistics, and philosophy.
