|Cognitive Biases: How we get tricked by our brain|
|Convenor: Angelo D' Agnano|
Cognitive biases, What they are and why they matter (also) in software development.
A heuristic is a quick, intuitive strategy for reasoning or decision making, as opposed to more formal methods.
These are the biases that I found most common for software developers (just my perception)
Literature documents about 100 biases.
Awareness of the bias has no effect on people. Actually smart people tend to be more biased than others, watch out!
