      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?
