The Science of Expertise (Part I): Introduction to Perceptual Learning

How do you become an expert? Why some Ruby developers can’t explain what they know? Why some developers don’t develop expert skills? What does it mean to be a Ruby expert? To discuss these questions, we’ll explore Perceptual Learning (PL) research. PL is a natural learning process that complements traditional Education. It accelerates expertise by speeding pattern recognition, intuition and fluency on a given subject.
