Roundtable discussion: How to find time for technical improvements
Finding time to refactor and improve our code is often a hassle. Leadership may see no value in investing a lot of time into getting very little in return for the customer. Often, these types of initiatives get sidelined by a flashy new feature or contractual obligation. Join Pavel Kalandra for a discussion about ways you can ensure you have enough time to invest in your code.
How do roundtable discussions work?
- Every roundtable discussion includes 5 active participants and a moderator to run the discussion.
- Each participant will prepare a question about the chosen topic to discuss. Please come prepared with a question and be prepared to discuss the questions other participants ask.
- The roundtable discussion lasts a total of 40 minutes, including:
o 5 MINUTES: A quick introduction from each participant about who you are and what you do.
o 35 MINUTES: Interactive discussions about each question (7 minutes per question).
- Other conference attendees are welcome to quietly watch the roundtable discussion. There will always be about 15 chairs set up for an audience. We’ll also be live streaming the discussion for attendees who can’t attend in person
Don't worry if you run out of time! Feel free to continue talking with other participants after the official roundtable discussion ends.
