Exploring the DNA of Successful Developer Teams

Last year at Office Hours, we had an engaging and compelling talk from our Engineering Manager, Travis Vachon, titled ‘Exploring The DNA Of Successful Developer Teams’. If you couldn’t make the event in person, or just want to revisit the insightful presentation, you’ll find a video of the talk in its entirety below.

Travis Vachon on the DNA of successful developer teams

About the talk

CircleCI works with 20k+ organizations and 80k+ developers. They work daily with developer teams (and they are one, to-boot) so they have seen first-hand what the best teams do to drive success at places like Kickstarter, Facebook and GoPro. This talk explores the DNA of what makes successful developer teams — from the basics of trust and control to the more abstract of team organization, tools and productivity.

You can watch the full video of Travis’ talk on building successful developer teams here.
