Developer Productivity Engineering – The Next Big Thing in Software Development

By 2022, the IDC predicted that 65% of the global GDP would be digitally transformed. Two-thirds of the products and services that you pay for will be driven by software, and the quality, cost, and time to market of your software products will determine the fate of your business. There has never been a more critical time to foster developer productivity, but many of our methods have not evolved. In this keynote-style breakout session, Gradle's Justin Reock explores why DPE is the most important development in the software engineering world since the introduction of Agile and DevOps concepts and tools. DPE is a new software development practice that uses acceleration technologies to speed up the software build & test process and data analytics to improve developer efficiencies by as much as 10x. The ultimate aim is to achieve faster feedback cycles, more reliable and actionable data, and a highly satisfying developer experience.
