In this session we will look to see how we can refactor our learning - what tools, and methodologies can we use to help us learn quicker and better - how we can create a store that gives us quick access to information when we really need it.

We all work in an industry in which not only do the tools that we use change ever few years, but one in which we have to shift the very paradigms these tools are built on! Even the most trivial of projects entails tens of different toolkits, frameworks, and languages coming together, and somehow we need to know how to leverage each one. How does one keep up? Despite all our years in schools, and our in-born nature to learn, we often are never taught how to learn. How can we learn faster, and retain even more?

In this session we will take a look at various tools and techniques available to us and see how we can make our learning effective.
