Developer Joy – How great teams get s%*t done


Sven Peters, DevOps advocate at Atlassian, has been studying trends in software development for the last 15 years uncovering the cultural and technical attributes to help development teams work effectively and drive innovation. He has 20 years experience in writing code, leading teams, and sharing his experience with thousands of developers at uncountable conferences in 25+ countries.


Software development has become more complex over the years: Building and running a distributed architecture in the cloud, ensuring observability, and keeping a healthy balance between dev speed and code quality isn’t easy. They say’ Just be agile and practice DevOps to increase developer productivity’ but does that really solve the problem?

Join Sven and learn how great software teams measure and improve their developer experience, coordinate work across teams, reduce wait times, and create a healthy and joyful engineering culture. Instead of focusing just on developer productivity we shouldn’t lose sight of what makes this craft fun for engineers.
