Talk: The Wheel of Startup Life
Technology teams, at startups in particular, are often too busy writing code and fixing bugs to step back and reflect on their practice. As a result, they are not able to adopt the mindset, tools and processes that lead to a higher performance. In this talk, we will explore some of those often overlooked areas that can transform how your team works. This is your chance to reflect on the health of your engineering organization and to walk away inspired and armed with some ideas you can start implementing right away.
