The best engineering leaders know that you can have both speed and quality when developing software.
The best engineering leaders know that you can have both speed and quality when developing software. Indeed, the only way to keep up the pace of delivery is to build high quality software. Everybody wins.
However, all too often, it can feel like you are not in control of the quality of your code. You can feel like your team doesn’t have time to develop high quality code. You can feel like you are forced to make a trade off between the quality of code and speed of development. And when you do you typically end up with neither.
How do you take back control of your code quality? How do you get your team and stakeholders to believe that this will enable you to develop faster? What practices do you need to put in place to make this true>
In this talk I will share stories from my experiences in leading engineering teams that illustrate the dynamics between team members and with stakeholders that lead teams to lose control of code quality.
And I will share a set of practices and techniques that you can take away and use to support your team to take control of their code quality, deliver rapidly and keep stakeholders on your side.
