Dr. Cat Hicks, VP of Research Insights for Pluralsight Flow, joins Adam to discuss her recent developer presentation, “It’s like coding in the dark.” In this discussion, Cat and Adam discuss how development leaders can (and must) build a sustainable developer culture. This includes proper documentation, psychological safety, and creating open discussion forums where ideas are welcome.
In a current climate where new talent is impossible to find, it’s important that your developer team is set up to grow as a unit and individuals while being open and honest with each other. Cat has spent her career working to understand the human element of productivity and that shines through in this discussion.
