You wouldn’t believe how similar writing a crochet pattern is to writing code. There are hardware requirements, loops, methods, modeling diagrams, and more. In this talk, I show how reading and writing crochet patterns uses many of the same fundamental principles as coding. There are many practices we, as software developers, can borrow from the crafting community. I'll explore a few of those ideas and how approaching code as craft will make us better developers. After listening, you will walk away with an appreciation for how much we can learn from other disciplines and you might even become interested in learning to crochet!
