Data-Driven Software Engineering for Agile Teams Prior Year Content

Remember the old days when software engineering teams used to tune software until it passed quality gates, gave golden bits to marketing, and finally threw a big release party? The world was simple, and writing code that worked according to a specification was enough to be a star developer. Viktor Veis says that world has changed. Software now often dials back home to record information about its usage and health. This telemetry flows back to engineering teams who are accountable for making sense out of this data. This is a fundamental shift in the software engineer role. Teams who can leverage data-driven engineering will delight customers by learning more about customers than they know about themselves. Teams who ignore data-driven engineering will continue based on assumptions and eventually lose competitive nerve. Join Viktor to learn how to start data-driven engineering today. Discover a practical approach that sometimes deviates from classical data science but is easy to learn and apply.
