Session Name: Embrace the pitfalls (Our stop start journey to Change)
As developers, we want to work in a modern way, to get fast feedback on what we are building to make sure that we are building the right things in the right way.
However, many companies are still at the start of their journey. Things take longer than we would like to get moving, sometimes change can seem to happen at a glacial pace and whilst you are ready to try and run, others are finding their feet - or even digging in their heels!
In this talk, Stacy will go over some of the pitfalls that have happened to her, and the lessons that she has learned from them. Unfortunately, there are no magic solutions to make the problems go away, but hopefully, you can look at the mistakes she has made and go away to make your own new ones to learn from!
Stacy is Tech Explorer DevOps at Omniplan. She’s been developing software since the mid-1990s and has been speaking about improving the way we develop software at conferences and meetups since 2018. As well as sparing with the software architect about technical issues, she spends her time helping the development team, and the wider company, with continuous improvement in terms of technical work, process and, of course, working together as a team. Outside of work she enjoys spending time with her classic car, cooking, playing the piano badly and spending time with her family, doing amongst other things, building a Lego modular building city in their house.
