Eli Schleifer, Co-CEO, trunk.io

A Ferrari and a Camry race from San Francisco to Oakland - which car wins? Well they’re racing on a Friday at 4PM… so, neither. Whether your team is stacked with 10x engineers or b-players, all of your engineers are constrained by poor workflows and errant tools.. No matter how productive your team is, if your CI system is prone to flaky tests, if your main branch is frequently broken, and if your engineers are bickering over coding style guidelines or idiomatic nitpicks - your team is going to be stuck in first gear. In this session, we’ll review real-world examples of engineering teams brought to their knees by bad processes and systems, and the tools and strategies to suck less.

1. Proven strategies to reduce pull request churn and merge faster
2. Metrics to track to understand the real cost of your engineering workflows
3. How to avoid “nit battles” during code review
