We’re so pleased to having teamed up with Dave Farley, author of “Continuous Delivery” and frequent GOTO Conferences speaker, for a monthly video series featuring ideas about continuous delivery, DevOps, test-driven development, BDD, software engineering and software development in general.

Dave Farley – Continuous Delivery & DevOps Pioneer, Award-winning Author, Founder & Director of Continuous Delivery Ltd.


What’s the difference between great developers and good developers? It’s not about language or tools, it is a collection of other skills and attributes. How to be good at programming is about a lot more than only a good grasp of syntax or an encyclopaedic knowledge of libraries and frameworks. To learn to program well, is something that takes a long time and requires some talent, but the people who are great at it do seem to share some skills.

In this episode Dave Farley, who has worked with many great programmers, describes what he sees as the difference between the people that seem to do a great job and those that don’t. This is about more than only programming tips, but there are some of those here too, and it is not always how we learn to program, it is about how we approach problems and construct solutions that we can live with and evolve over time and how we deal with other people while we are doing it.
