Shaping up engineering at Octopus Deploy (US)
Octopus has grown considerably over the last few years, as we have gone from 10 Australians in 2015 to almost 100 in 2020 across the world as we’ve brought a European and a US team on-board. This growth was not without its problems.

As our engineering team grew, we expected that our output and new features would increase along with the team. The reality was that as we added engineers and released more complex features it was actually the opposite of what we expected.

We are not the first technology company to experience these problems and they have been observed at Facebook, Google, Twitter, and many other large Technical companies. As teams and the complexity of features grow over time, the output slowed down.

In the middle of 2019, not long after we released Spaces we started looking at and adopting the Basecamp Shape-Up model, and this helped give us more focussed development time, removing interruptions, giving us more time to scope features upfront, and increasing our feature releases considerably.

In this webinar, join our product, engineering, and customer advisory leads as they discuss the problems we experienced, what we did to overcome them, and how development and releases are managed at Octopus Deploy.

What you'll learn:
- The problems our engineering team faced as we grew.
- How we adopted Basecamp's Shape-up development methodology to improve how development and releases are managed at Octopus.
- Lessons learned as we tried to improve how we shipped software.

There is a European version of this webinar on the 16th of December and you can sign-up for this at https://octopus.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_Ev_ZK06yTXquDUgMh7UN9g
