In seeking great ideas, it can help to look at how people in other disciplines are doing things. In some cases, going for a hike also helps.

Both will be in play at this week’s DC PHP Developers meetup.

On Wednesday, June 14, at Canvas Co/work, John Bafford will talk “Hiking and Hacking: Two Sides of the Same Coin.” Hiking the Appalachian Trail is a feat that’s probably worth a talk on its own. Bafford found there was lots to apply for technologists, as well.

“While hiking the 2,200-mile long Appalachian Trail, I realized that planning and executing a long-distance hike involves many of the same skills and challenges as developing software,” Bafford wrote on the event’s Meetup page.
