Lean Engineering: Applying lean startup principles at Paypal
How do you take a gigantic organization like PayPal and begin to transform the engineering organization to act like a startup? How does engineering become a first class partner to bringing great experiences to life?
Engineering is often the key blocker in being able to achieve a high rate of innovation and often not at the table helping to craft experiences up front. In this talk, Bill Scott will give specific principles on how to think & build your engineering stack in a startup manner no matter the size of your company.
He will take you through specifically how his team has re-factored a large enterprise technology stack into a lean engineering stack and also changed the way engineers work with design & product partners. In addition, Bill will provide additional examples that go back to his early days writing one of the first Macintosh games to his more recent work at Netflix on the power of enabling a build/measure/learn oriented engineering organization.
