When Your Best Developers Leave, Does Their Knowledge About Your Code Leave With Them? (EXEC TALK)

Feedback form is now closed.
Given that employee turnover is highest in tech companies among all industries, chances are your best developers will leave and someone new will have to take over your codebase within the next 18 months. Where is the knowledge your development team has created and shared stored today? If you are like most companies, the answer is not encouraging. Developers report spending as much as 75% of their time trying to understand existing code, while fewer than 20% learn about their code from internal tools and documentation. Peter Pezaris, CEO of CodeStream, will share insights, techniques and solutions aimed at solving the knowledge gap for development teams over time.
