Kelsey Janda

Prototyping as a Team

Previously Vice President of Design @ Previously Hudl

More info...

Often we’re stuck making one idea to solve a problem or fit acceptance criteria. At Hudl, we shook that up. We coined the phrase “learning by making” and got every role (product mangers, engineers, scrum masters, designers, quality analysts) making prototypes. It was messy and didn’t always work. We threw away a lot but it resulted in a happier team and more involved users and customers. I’ll share actual stories of when it worked and when it fell flat. I’ll include principles we learned along the way and how managers + leaders play crucial roles.

Erica Cuttitta

Sr. Director of Engineering @ Pluralsight

Nate Hales

Sr. QA Lead @ Riot Games

Rhia Dixon

It's All Relative: The Science of Debugging

Associate Director of Technology @ VMLY&R

More info...

Most people don't realize they do math every day, and I'm guessing most people also don't consider they're using science. The Scientific Method isn't just a tool for doctors and scientists. If you're solving problems, you're likely using it too!

Let's break down how the Scientific Method applies to the Software Development Life Cycle as we track down a few bugs.

Eric Gerling

Lessons Learned from a Lifetime of “No”

DevOps Consultant, Coach and Mentor @ Trility Consulting

More info...

Tired of hearing “No” when you want to migrate applications to the cloud or leverage new cloud services? Eric Gerling has given and gotten a lot of “Nos” since opening his first cloud account in 2012. While his work in the cloud is not the sole reason he’s lost all his hair, he does hope to save you from scratching your head when working with the decision-makers in your organization. No matter what your cloud ecosystem, you’ll often hear “No” from every direction. Whether it’s Cloud Engineers, InfoSec, Compliance, C-suite, or just someone writing checks to Azure, AWS, Google Cloud, or any other public cloud. Key Takeaway: You’ll leave with five ways to arm yourself and overcome rejection so what you hear instead is, “So you’re telling me there’s a chance.”

One trick to build successful product teams

Tech Lead @ Gallup

More info...

The only trick to know is that there is no trick. Building teams is difficult. Building successful product teams even more so. In this talk, we explore several techniques that I've learned and used over time to cultivate product-minded engineers and build products that customers love.

The Omaha Tech Community: An Interactive Discussion
