Relationship Driven Development - Code less, talk more!

I make the case that investing deeply in relationships with real data will improve engineering throughput and can be objectively quantified. This session uses research from the DORA report and other studies to help technical folks understand that our job isn't simply to code, but build the relationships that enable us to write better code and be better at solving problems.

So, you inherited technical debt

There is a light at the end of the tunnel! We will talk about how to make sure it's not a train.

Navigating the technical and cultural pitfalls of technical debt requires understanding the tools and goals of the organization. We discuss both and layout a framework for making change in the organization and the stack. How do you keep engineers and stakeholders engaged and satisfied?
