Presentation: Distributing a Mobile Team: A Brave New Etsy Chapter


Day of week:

9:00am - 9:50am

In the ten years Etsy has been in business, it’s become a well-oiled web team. Built on continuous deployment and monitoring, Etsy web has a diverse range of product teams. They build fast, ship, and then sometime in the distant future the mobile team would realize that feature needs to get in.

We decided this wasn’t the Etsy way to build mobile. We dissolved the traditional Android and iOS teams and trained tons of web developers in app development. This talk attempts to break down my learnings watching us take a honed web team into the apps world.
