It's All Fun And Games Until...: A Tale of Repetitive Stress Injury

06/02/2015 - 10:00 to 11:00
Stage 1

Session abstract: 

I spent years ignoring ergonomics, operating under an arrogance that the health issues associated with long hours behind a keyboard were something that happened to others, and Not Me.  Unsurprisingly, I would learn the hard way that I was wrong.

Years of surgery, physical therapy, medication, and a healthier set of work habits have taught me the value of an ounce of prevention.  In this presentation I relate a cautionary tale of mistakes made, consequences incurred, and the lessons learned along the way.
