Motivated engineers create better products.

What do we need to do to create a better developer experience?

We will take a deeper look into what we can learn from agile methodologies, from extreme programming as well as from classic team and management theory. Imposing a methodology on a team by management has more often than not proven to be an ineffective way to create motivated developers. Motivated developers and teams need to choose and define their own process.
This also means removing obstacles and creating an environment where team culture is valued.

This talk should be a non-dogmatic look into how developers can change their own work environment, based on proven and effective techniques that enable developers and teams to excel.
