Software Development and Business Value: Connecting the Dots (Ep. 50)

November 14, 2017 Jeff Kelly

Matt Stine has some advice for software developers. Stop a moment and try to connect the dots between the code you are currently writing and the business problem that code is intended to solve. If you can't, there's a good chance you're developing software just for the sake of developing software. And that doesn't help anybody.

On this episode of Pivotal Insights, Matt, who serves as Pivotal's Global CTO - Architecture, talks about getting back to fundamental software development principles, improving communication within development teams, and delivering business value with software.
