I came across a Peter Norvig article. It’s an interesting article and perspective that focuses on using deliberate practice on the craft of programming. Of course, the assumption is that one is approaching programming as a craft.
Freakonomics had two episodes about deliberate practice. The first episode is a conversation with the research psychologist (Andres Ericsson) that studied it. The second (bonus) episode is a conversation with the man who popularized the concept of deliberate practice (i.e. Malcolm Gladwell) and the differences between what he wrote about and what Andres’ research revealed.
