The Past and Future of Feature Release

With the right tools and frameworks, feature releases can occur multiple times a day, and many developers feel equipped to work more independently, under less unnecessary pressure. What does this look like in practice? Can developers really move fast and thrive?

Developers like you deserve an experience that gives you autonomy and minimizes stress

In today’s tech environment, advocating for these key elements of the developer experience isn’t easy. With more companies downsizing their teams and halting their hiring efforts, you may feel like you don’t want to rock the boat—even if you’re sinking. You don’t want to look ungrateful by requesting more autonomy, better processes, and additional resources.
