With software projects becoming more and more complex, delivering new features into production quickly and safely has become a major challenge for most software organizations today. Making sure developers are able to develop and deploy new features in rapid cycles is a key success factor, but this task has long been neglected. The most successful software organizations are prioritizing this key success factor through a new practice called Developer Productivity Engineering. This practice is based on a culture where the entire organization collaborates to maximize developer productivity.
This talk will address the questions:
What are the challenges organizations are facing regarding developer productivity?
Who is responsible for maximizing developer productivity?
Which skills are required in developer productivity engineering?
What tools do teams use to measure and improve their productivity?
