Limited Capacity seats available

Software, like art, can be subjective and our appreciation of it influenced by our own personal views and tastes. The fine arts have long cultivated a processes for students and teachers to process feedback on both the objective and subjective aspects of works in a clear, helpful and kind way. This process, known as “Critiquing” aims to give the artist meaningful feedback on how others see their art so they may grow and improve. In this workshop we will teach software development teams the formal process of critiquing and how to apply it to demos or even code reviews.

Learning Outcomes:
  • At the end of the workshop students should know the different parts of a formal art critique. They should be able to give a meaningful critique to someone and should also understand how to receive criticism and know what their options are for responding to it.
