WTF is next for Developer Experience?

27th September 2022 (Yes, we are back from our Summer holidays.)

14:00 CEST


One of the best (and most profitable) feelings as a software engineer is flow; being able to get lost in code and projects without needing to interrupt anyone, and without needing to be interrupted ourselves. 

This is how we effectively deliver value to the business.

Developer Experience (DevEx or DX), also called ‘engineering enablement’ or ‘engineering productivity’ is how we deliberately create a flow-friendly environment. When you invest in this, the impact is often felt in productivity and happiness and as a result, increased profitability and retention.

With our most recent WTF collection we’ve looked at case studies from a range of organisations including the Financial Times, Monzo and Spotify to get a sense of what a good developer experience looks like. 

In this WTFinar, we will challenge our experts to give their ideas as to what we might expect to see in the next few years, and give you the opportunity to put some of your DevEx questions to them.
