In this special Speaker Series, LaunchDarkly Co-founder/CTO and Twilio VP Platform share their approaches to building resilient and sustainable engineering cultures.
The strongest and most resilient engineering organizations are those that simultaneously manage technical debt in a sustainable way, encourage a culture of documentation and individual empowerment, and incentivize leaving things better than they were when you found them.
In this special Heavybit Speaker Series, John Kodumal, Co-founder and CTO at LaunchDarkly, and Jesper Joergensen, VP Platform at Twilio, will explore the realities of today’s complex software systems and the teams behind them. While sharing their own approaches to building resilient and sustainable engineering cultures, John and Jesper will cover topics including:
- Defining different forms of technical debt and how they affect organizations, teams, and individuals differently, and how to leverage debt strategically for outsized impact
- Balancing your customer’s desire for stability and reliability, with your engineering org’s desire to build new features
- Predictions for the future of enterprise-scale software engineering organizations.
