Programmer Interrupted: Chris Parnin on the how/why/effects/preventions of interruption

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/10/09

About 9 months ago, Chris Parnin – a student on the empirical, hci, and cognitive neuroscience aspects of software development – wrote a great blog entry named Programmer Interrupted.

His article has a great number of links to insightful articles with background information (one of the first, Maker’s Schedule, Manager’s Schedule, helped me so much to explain my planning to other people).

I set aside a couple of hours to read and grasp some of it, and plan to read the content links he refers in more detail.
