Understanding DORA metrics for Software Delivery Performance
As programmers we work hard all day to ensure we build the best products in the best technical way possible, and if that work isn't shipped to customers right away, we are unable to generate any value of it for the company / product. DevOps plays a critical role in our organisations today, and ensure we have an efficient production line shipping features to our customers is a part of it. In this episode we review how we can better understand and measure performance of our software delivery and what does it take to compete with the best out there.
Whats makes a good software engineer?
While mentoring some students with technical interviews, I documented what I find to be most important qualities of a software developer or engineer.

However I feel a bit differently about this, and in this episode share the things all software engineers should focus on and how they can improve them selves if lacking.
