Testing, DevOps, and High-Performing Teams


See one way leading practices come together to create a high-performing team and walk away with ideas on how to create your own.


Welcome to unicorn land, that place where software is delivered frequently, with high quality, meeting user needs, with no estimates or deadlines, by people who love working and playing together. This place exists, but it exists through an intentional yet evolving blend of practices and philosophies from the Agile, Lean, and DevOps playbooks and more.

Let’s explore how autonomy, automation, extreme user-centricity, continuous delivery, and collective ownership come together to start and scale a company. We’ll focus on technical practices and their interplay, but the story can’t be told without some doses of culture and human interaction.

At the end, you’ll have a sense of how you can craft your own high-performing teams, not by emulating someone else’s model, but by understanding the interplay between the converging ideas of today and finding how they fit for you.
