TEAM Building

Hi, I’m Tsaela, I’m the lead singer in a rock band, and I’ve been developing code and managing teams for the past ten years. It never never ceases to amaze me how much the two loves of my life have in common. Albert Einstein once said that “The greatest scientists are artists as well.” Great developers can be compared to other kinds of artists who join together to bring their visions to life. Talented musicians share many of the traits that we look for in good coders. They are detail oriented and notorious perfectionists. They’re at their best when they’re analytical, logical, and methodical. Sound familiar? That’s probably because those are the same traits that our best developers have.

In this session I’ll share my experience of building an R&D team to perform like a rock band.
