Why Your Team Has Slowed Down, Why That's Worse than You Think, and How to Fix it



Edmund Jorgensen discusses how and why engineering teams slow down, showing how attempts to manage costs in the face of slowdowns can death-spiral into worse delays with deadly economic consequences.


Edmund Jorgensen is a co-founder at Hut 8 Labs. Before Hut 8 Labs he worked at HubSpot, TripAdvisor, and a number of startups (some of them also with camel-cased names), where he led teams, designed and coded high-traffic systems, and carried the pager. He is especially interested in the operational and economic aspects of software.
