How To Do Kick-Ass Software Development

Devcon October Conference, Thursday, October 10, 2013, 13:00

With Kick-Ass Software Development you actually get stuff done. Feedback cycles are short, code quality is awesome and customers get the features they lust after.

Less mangers managing, less testers testing and less IT-operators operating. The developers take the power back, making them much happier. Sound like paradise? It is!

This session will show you how we do Kick-Ass Software Development at Atlassian. I will talk about how we: use pull requests for better code quality; collaborate fast to develop ideas; avoid meetings to get more stuff done; tighten our feedback loops to fail faster; shorten our release cycles; and work together happily on different continents. It's a great way to develop software and we think it can work in your company, too.

I work for Atlassian as 'Ambassador' a sort of Evangelist, a bridge between local Communities and the company  who tries to evangelize about our products, the technologies we use and our commitment to agile methodologies.

I have been working as developer, team leader and CTO in the IT Industry for more than 10 years, mainly in web development and Internet apps mostly with Java/JavaScript as main technologies. I love cinema, videogames and cooking. I'm married with Candela and I'm the proud father of Irene, my 3-months-old daughter.
