If you're like me, you may be overwhelmed with the amount of knowledge you're supposed to learn and recall at a moment's notice. Also like me, you may have trouble sorting through all of the amazing technical content we get online. There's an interesting science behind our human ability to learn and recall technical information, and some best-practices you can apply to improve your recall and memorization skills. Whether you're studying for a certification exam, undertaking self-paced training online, or preparing to participate in an online class, you're going to be challenged to learn and remember technical concepts. In this talk we'll look at the techniques adapted by medical students, polyglots, and the most successful information security analysts to learn and commit new topics to memory for long-term recall. We'll cover the amazing Anki tool, and how you can apply spaced repetition to develop long-term recall for any technical subject.
