  1. SREcon19 Europe/Middle East/Africa - Pushing through Friction

    Note: This talk contains language that some viewers may find objectionable.

    Pushing through Friction

    Dan Na, Squarespace

    Things are broken. The deployment pipeline is painfully slow. Your engineering team has doubled in the last year and there’s a lack of sufficient process and management. You git blame a file that’s used everywhere but nobody understands it; the person who wrote it left the company five years ago.

    As a senior-level engineering leader, experience tells you things could be better. You see the gaps. If only the company adopted policy A or dumped technology B, everyone would benefit. But there’s so much inertia. The company has always used B. You are frustrated. Can you actually make a difference?

    Yes. You are encountering organizational friction, and learning to identify, accept and push through friction is a key skill of engineering leaders. In this talk, Dan will talk about why organizational friction occurs and how to mitigate it. The ability to push through friction will distinguish you throughout your career.

  2. Scott Hanselman – Scaling Yourself

    This presentation was recorded at GOTO Aarhus 2012. #gotocon #gotoaar http://gotocon.com

    Scott Hanselman - Principal Program Manager, Microsoft

    ABSTRACT As information workers, we are asked to absorb even more information than ever before. More blogs, more documentation, more patterns, more layers of abstraction. Now Twitter and Facebook compete with Email and Texts for our attention, keeping us up-to-date on our friends dietary details and movie attendance second-by-second. Does all this information take a toll on your psyche or sharpen the saw? Is it a matter of finding the right tools and filters to capture what you need, or do you just need to unplug. Is ZEB (zero email bounce) a myth or are there substantive techniques for prioritizing your life on the web? Come see Scott’s famous "Scaling Yourself" talk, adapted to take only 15 minutes of your time!

    Pull quotes “Games need goals. In fact, goals are a defining feature of games. But we can’t just have any goals. We need good goals. And for a game, good goals are concrete, achievable, and rewarding.” “The best games create strong emotions because emotions are the fou…
