Social Coding for Effective Teams and Products

A session at QCon San Francisco 2016

The software industry in the past romanticized the image of the solitary coder in a basement twiddling bits to produce a great work. But in reality, software has always been a collaborative social effort.

From putting people on the moon to building a game that causes people to run around outside chasing imaginary creatures, all of these efforts required developers to work closely together and build upon the work that preceded them. The secret ingredient to great teams and products are the misnamed "soft" skills, which end up being really hard to do well.

This talk, we'll delve into these soft skills and how they help teams be more effective and back all of it with hard data.
