In this talk, I relate the practice of masterclasses in music to feedback cycles and how we can apply that to software engineering and development.
- Explanation of some musical concepts
- An exploration of the components of feedback
- Practical things you can do to get better at feedback
- Live music!

Helen Hou-Sandí is the Director of Open Source Initiatives at 10up and a Lead Developer for the WordPress open source software project, now powering more than 40% of the web. From her start as a PHP/MySQL applications developer to focusing on "the front-end of the back-end" from both the development and UX perspectives, she has a knack for figuring out what people need to get things done on their websites, including most recently on the relaunch of WhiteHouse.gov for the Biden-Harris Administration.
This keynote will be presented as part of CodeLand 2021 on September 23. After the talk is streamed as part of the conference, it will be added to this post as a recorded video along with the slides.
