Tech Radar Vol. 22: The value of enduring engineering practices
While developing our latest Technology Radar, we found ourselves continually coming back to the necessity of applying good engineering principles to new areas of software development. We return to this topic so often because we keep finding niches where we see slow progress on this advice. For this Radar, we decided to call out again ‘infrastructure as code’ as well as ‘pipelines as code’, and we also had a number of conversations about infrastructure configurations, machine learning pipelines and other related areas. We find that outside ThoughtWorks, the teams who commonly own these areas do not embrace enduring engineering practices such as applying software design principles, automation, continuous integration, testing, and so on.
Join our upcoming online panel discussion where we’ll further explore this topic. Our panelists include two of the authors of Technology Radar, ThoughtWorks Head of Technology for Australia, Scott Shaw, and Head of Engineering, Evan Bottcher, as well as Lead Consultant, Inny So, and Software Developer, Effy Elden.
