Track: Developer Experience: Level up your Engineering Effectiveness

Day of week: Wednesday

If software (developers) are eating the world, then, improving the developers’ experience and hence productivity should be paramount! Organizations are becoming flattered and engineers are being asked to do more than ever before. All of this contributes to an increase in cognitive load for engineers. How can we apply software to the problem of enabling high-velocity development and while concurrently considering the human factors? 

In this track, we will focus on discussing the future of engineering productivity.  We will see how the best organizations are very focused on reducing the cognitive load for engineers and organizations, so they can better focus on delivering business value. We will hear experience reports and real-world stories about the various ways individuals, teams and organizations have augmented people, process and/or technology to level up their engineering effectiveness.
