SUMMARY

Developer productivity is a matter of business efficiency. But fixating on metrics like cycle time and speed to ship reduces software development to a chore – especially at a time when developers are expected to do a lot more than code. As leaders, we must ask ourselves: are my developers actually experiencing the joy of creation that brought them here in the first place?

Atlassian believes fostering developer joy is the secret to reconnecting them with the love of the craft by removing friction and empowering teams. After all, happy developers aren't simply more efficient – but the passion they pour into their work results in better software. Atlassian’s Head of Engineering, Preeti Kota, will share the key ingredients (and challenges) to creating a culture of developer joy in any organization, including how leaders can achieve executive buy-in and elevate it as a company-wide goal.
