QCon San Francisco Keynote: Discovering Culture through Artifacts

Announcing the QCon San Francisco 2019 keynote: 'Discovering Culture through Artifacts' by Engineering Leader, Frontend Infrastructure @Slack, Mike McGarr.

Behavior and values are two critical components to organizational culture; values denote what the organization believes in, and behaviors are rooted in those values. Every team, organization or community exposes "artifacts", or tangible hints, regarding the true nature of their culture. In this talk McGarr will discuss the numerous types of artifacts that can be used to gain a quick understanding of a culture within a software development team. He will also share a wealth of "experiences" (a subtle euphemism for failures) that have shaped his approach to learning about culture.

Mike McGarr currently leads Slack's Frontend Infrastructure team, who are focused on building a great JavaScript client. Prior to Slack, McGarr led Netflix's Developer Productivity team, which built tools and services to make engineers at Netflix more productive. McGarr is also one of the founders and co-organizers of the Productivity Engineering Silicon Valley meetup.
