Have you ever spent hours solving what feels like it should be a simple problem in your code? Have you felt the pain of getting to the end of a sprint only to find feature you've spent the last week working on isn't actually what the customer wanted? Do you frequently find yourself having long conversations with the rubber duck you keep on your desk while you wait for your code to compile?

These all might be signs that your feedback loop is too long!

The length of your feedback loop is determined by the amount of time it takes from doing some work to when you see the result of that work. In this session we'll look at different ways you can increase your productivity by shortening your feedback loop and how short feedback loops are critical to the learning process.
