Let’s talk experience! In business today, we speak endlessly about digital experience, customer experience, employee experience, patient experience, provider experience, and so on. But one of the newest forms of experience to walk on the scene is still somewhat obscure: developer experience. With an increased focus on digital business, it’s really important for organizations to think about the professional and personal well-being of the people developing software for them.
The latest episode of Silo Busting double-clicks on this highly relevant topic. Listen up, and you’ll get the full download from Pavel Azaletskiy, EPAM’s Director of Technology Consulting and Head of Engineering Excellence Consulting in North America. He’s in conversation with Sandra Loughlin, Managing Principal and Head of Client Learning & Talent Enablement at EPAM.
Loughlin says: “Developer experience is about keeping developers happy and successful in their jobs” and that it involves various components: tools, culture, belief in job and organizational vision.
Azaletskiy concurs and notes that developer experience isn’t just for companies exclusively focused on tech. “Every company right now is a technology company,” he adds. “Without efficient delivery and good developer experience it’s very hard to compete.”
This plugged-in conversation examines he cultural aspects of DevX, the interesting idea of citizen development, the essential elements that developers seek in a job, the relevant benchmarks companies should consider, and more.
