Our special guest speaker will be Andy Hunt, programmer turned consultant, author and publisher. His topic will be “It’s All In Your Head:  Thinking, Programming, and Inventing in the 21st Century.”
Andy Hunt is a programmer turned consultant, author and publisher. He has authored award-winning and best-selling books, including The Pragmatic Programmer and seven others, including his latest, Learn to Program with Minecraft Plugins and the popular Pragmatic Thinking and Learning.

Hunt was one of the 17 founders of the Agile Alliance and authors of the Agile Manfesto; and co-founded the Pragmatic Bookshelf, publishing award-winning and critically acclaimed books for software developers
Abstract:  Software development happens in your head; not in an editor, IDE, or design tool. But how can you mine the best ideas your mind comes up with? Join Andy Hunt to find out how to grow your brain, take advantage of your different neural network processing styles to harvest internal clues, and learn new techniques you can use to generate great ideas—including the one simple habit that can make you a genius.
The event is free and open to the public.  Ample free parking is available on Centennial Campus after 5 pm.  For directions and more information, click here.
