Ted Young talks with Dave Rael about solving problems, building things, learning, teaching, lifestyle, listening, understanding, and finding good fits

Ted M. Young has been developing software and training developers for several decades. In the 1990s he traveled the world as a Java trainer & consultant. In the 2000s, Ted led eXtreme Programming projects for the government and during his time at eBay. He went on to introduce lean and agile concepts at Google, Guidewire Software, and Apple. In 2017, Ted came full circle and is once again focused on human learning through technical training and coaching, both in-person and online. His company, Spiral Learning, uses the science of how we learn to design, create, and deliver well-tested Java training for those who code, and those who want to.

Ted's top 3 tips for delivering more value:
  1. Listen for understanding, don't make assumptions, and check your understanding
  2. Give examples
  3. Do the most straightforward thing that could possibly work
