Anna J McDougall

Adapting to the Future of Work in Tech
Bassem Dghaidi
GitHub
Anyone who worked in tech, for any amount of time, knows that the landscape is in constant motion. The technologies of today are obsolete tomorrow. The tools of the trade are in constant motion, and continuous upskilling is the bread and butter of all software engineers who survive the passing waves. The software engineers of the future are those who mastered 1 skill: adaptation.

Scaling Fast – Engineering Lessons From ~15 Years of Tech Startups
Swizec Teller
Tia
Building a business is a slugfest to see who gets more customers first. You have to adopt that mindset when writing code. As an old boss told me once: Clean code won't matter if we're dead. You have to shift your mindset from best practices to getting shit done.

Managing Ourselves Managing Each Other
Rachel Nabors
DevX consultant
“Hell is other people.” There are many talks on how to get started as an engineer and how to step into management, but there are few talks about how to be an adult in (professional) relationships. I’ve spent my career in small companies and startups, FAANG organizations, and opensource communities. Each of these spaces demands different things of the people in them, yet across these spaces all succeed and fail along the fault lines of a core set of soft skills: regulating emotions, setting boundaries, framing experiences productively, and letting go. In this talk, I share everything I’ve learned in my career that has helped my colleagues, mentees, and friends so that you may navigate the most difficult part of tech—people—with grace, empathy, and safety.

Not Your Everyday Tech Lead: What Does It Mean To Be TL in a Lean Software Company?
James Haworth Wheatman
Theodo UK
The experience of being a Tech Lead can change from organisation to organisation, from being an ivory tower architect to getting stuck in the weeds with complex technical challenges. A Lean Software Company is one whose approach is deeply rooted in optimising customer value through studying the techniques used in Toyota’s Production System.Old-school Agile also has many roots in Lean principles - Kanban, for example, is a tool used on the Toyota production line. But what can the manufacturing of cars teach us about software development?Join me for this exploration through the world of a TL as experienced within a Lean Software Company as I reveal some of the secrets that allow these companies to deliver higher-quality software at speed.

From Business Buzzwords to Meaningful Change: Measuring and Improving Engineering Productivity
Lena Reinhard
Executive & Leadership Coach
After years of rapid growth, the winds have changed in many tech companies, with strategy changes, budget cuts, restructurings, and layoffs. Productivity and efficiency have become the business buzzwords of the season, and while pressure towards “more engineering productivity” is mounting in many organizations, it can be difficult to apply these abstract concepts to engineering teams and turn them into concrete actions that don’t alienate your team and lead to lasting impact that aligns with your stakeholders’ needs. I’m here to help. In this talk, we’ll go: - Beyond buzzwords: What do productivity, efficiency, and effectiveness mean?

Observability Is Due for a Version Change; Are You Ready for It?
Charity Majors
honeycomb.io
The time has come: the DevOps revolution is winding down, and we’re entering the post-DevOps era. We’re at the precipice of a massive generational shift in how we build and understand our software, and CTOs need to prepare.In the past, we were only interested in basic metrics on how we operated our software: reliability, uptime, MTTR, MTTD. Observability 1.0. Companies that settle for these basic data points will not survive in this new era.As engineering best practices around separating deploys from releases, testing in production, observability-driven development have become standardized, the approach to telemetry has stalled, and it’s time for a new version: Observability 2.0.Learn what this new version means for your engineers, and how to embrace this breaking change to:- Save them from drowning in symptom-based alerting- Help fewer people work together to build better software- Create fast feedback loops throughout the entire organization through highly granular visibility into all their systems

Love Your Maintainers
Paolo Insogna
Platformatic
No developer is an island and no developer is perfect. This means that you cannot create anything without using components written by someone else and these components will have defects or missing features. At some point in our life we all asked for support to someone else.But being a maintainer is not an easy task at all. Think about receiving tons of reports with partial or missing information, or being yelled by strangers for not being responsive or fast enough.For the health of our industry we must love our maintainers more: in this talk I’ll show how to politely ask for help and how to make sure you provide all the necessary informations.
