What makes a rock band great? How about a software development team? As a developer, designer or manager, you might have more in common with musicians than you think.

As an amateur musician of 24 years with 10 years of experience in the software industry, I have found many similarities between these practices. Skills such as empathy, active listening and communication are all crucial for collaboration but don't get enough credit from the people who only see or hear the final product. In this talk you will learn how to be more conscious of these attributes and how to make your team really tick when it's go time.
