Session Name:

Production Essentials Summit: Anti-Crunch: Patterns and Practices


This talk by Chris Cobb from Pragma Platform dives into several strategies he and his team use to battle crunch culture. He'll describe how they practice their values of "Customer Triumph," "Quality at Speed," and "Unlocked Teams," to build healthy strategies for development.nnCobb will begin with technical strategies like how to create milestones that ship on schedule without crunch (he promises it's possible!) and how writing code early and shipping often helps prevent late-game disasters. He'll then talk about the power behind long-lived teams, and how they build teams of individuals rather than make short-term resource assignments, and the importance of encouraging a sustainable work/life balance.
