Dashboards and Culture - How Openness Changes Your Behavior (EN)

Much of the adoption of Agile and DevOps tools and processes focus on the benefits to delivering high quality code on an industrial scale.

This talk examines how what you share will define you. With case studies for various types of team this session will highlight how you can apply new thinking to help make any group more effective.
