Technical debt must die - Communicating code to business stakeholders

Presented by: Matt Eland
Time: Thursday, Jan. 09, 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM

Our software sucks. We're up to our necks in bugs and technical debt, yet we often seem to hit roadblocks explaining things in ways that bring about meaningful change. In this session you'll learn to gather, analyze, and interpret data in order to create effective presentations to communicate quality, technical debt, and other technical matters in ways that tell a compelling story. You’ll master how to communicate effectively with key stakeholders by taking a data-driven approach blended with storytelling techniques to bridge common gaps between development and business stakeholders. You’ll explore the 7 tools of software quality and how they can bring clarity and sanity to the decision-making process, justify paying down technical debt, and focusing on improving our software in the areas that need it most.
