How Improv Theater makes me a better developer by Mirko Fichtner

This Tech Talk is about an exciting and new connection – Theater and Software Development.

At EnthusiastiCon 2015 Mirko Fichtner showed how principles of Improvisational Theater relate to Software Development. Prominent examples are the aspect of receiving feedback from the audience or the element of positivity, for example when an actor acts out something that the idea is taken up by all other actors on stage in return. He uses these examples as metaphors to explain his programming experience.  “Impro theater comes out of nothing and turns into magic, just like programming,” he concludes.
