How Monkeys Can Help Software Development

When researching my talk on F1 and Paediatric Intensive Care I began to appreciate the influence that published papers in different fields of expertise could have on software development. It was then that I was reminded of a lightning talk  that I saw at XP2010.  This used research in behavioural economics to hypothesise that certain innate human characteristics are at odds when estimating and prioritising feature development. As we develop and deploy on a feature level at 7digital it made sense to investigate this further, so I read up on the source material and produced a short 15minute talk which I’ve documented on the 7digital developer blog:
