Randy is a 25-year veteran of Silicon Valley, having led engineering organizations at eBay, Google, Oracle, and a number of other companies. Through the lens of his personal experience from hands-on engineer to architect to CTO, at organizations ranging from tiny startups to global giants, Randy will discuss several important aspects of engineering cultures, which both support and hinder the ability to innovate: hiring and retention, ownership and collaboration, quality and discipline, and learning and experimentation.
Randy will suggest some learnings about what has worked well -- and what has not -- in creating and sustaining an effective engineering culture. He will further offer some concrete suggestions on how other organizations -- both large and small -- can evolve their cultures as well.
