Speaker: Juan Pablo Buritica (VP Engineering, Splice)
Talk: Increasing Tempo: How we accelerated Splice Engineering delivery using industry insights and data
The Splice Engineering team grew almost ten times in eighteen months. The delivery practices that worked for us when we were five broke way before we got to fifty. We wanted our organization to learn faster than the market; to do this, we had to find a way to unlock our delivery. We used insights found on the State of DevOps Report and Accelerate, the book. With this knowledge and the help of metrics to visualize our delivery, we were able to get back on a high-performance track.
This talk tells the story of how we used data to engineer the performance of our engineering organization and gives you practical takeaways on how you can do it too.
Speaker: Leslie Borrell (VP Smart Cities at Intersection)
