You're a software development consultant called into DevCorp with a mission. What started as a hip, informal startup now has investor demands to meet. And they're counting on you to help them become a scale-up. How do you grow the existing team and maintain the codebase?

This interactive talk, intended for any developer of any level, will give you some valuable technical and soft skills to take with you on your real-life professional journey. Using a voting system, the audience decides... and has to live with the consequences. Based on a mix of personal experience, agile methodology, and software design principles, this story has several possible endings.

Will you help lift your team's performance or run DevCorp into the ground?

Really enjoyable, hands on lecture. Missed the original lecture in 2018 that this one built on further, but will definitely see if I can find it online.

Great talk, I finally know how to get out of detached HEAD properly. Will definitely start to use bisect. Thanks.

Learnt so much in this talk about a tool I use daily. I’m going to go back and watch Paulines previous talk as a precursor

Fantastic as usual! There's always a new git command to learn. I dragged my colleague to this and he said "best talk of the day."

I though I was pretty good with git.... clearly I was wrong! Some great concepts and new (to me) ways to use git well presented - excited to try them out and take my git-fu to the next level! Thanks Pauline!
