"Yevgeniy did the startup world a giant favour with this book—it is like a lighthouse in a storm for anyone who wants to learn more about creating or working at a successful startup... [this] is the best business book I’ve read this year, maybe ever." 😊

Most software teams are limited not by how quickly they can write code, but how quickly they can deploy and test that code safely. Drop by the
Software Craftsmanship Berlin meetup on July 18th to hear my talk on why Agility Requires Safety. https://www.meetup.com/Software-Craftsmanship-Berlin/events/251641775/

The Gruntwork team at a company offsite in Iceland last week. We're a 100% distributed company, so we fly everyone out to fun locations 3-4 times per year so we can do some work and have some fun in person.
