    • Technology

In this podcast Shane Hastie, Lead Editor for Culture & Methods, spoke to Jeff Foster of Red Gate on their approach to continuous learning through 10% time, open space and running an internal conference.

Why listen to this podcast:

• The best software is software that people
• The only secret to great engineering is simplicity
• No matter how hard you try to enable people to take the 10% time, they take their deadlines to heart and the natural inclination is to focus on the work rather than the learning time
• Teams should not focus on the backlog items they are completing, rather on the difference they are making for the end user of the product
• Running a conference is tough, but by engaging the people in the event organisation it can be powerfully successful
