Soft on People, Hard on Code: interpersonal approaches that promote high quality software

What makes high quality software? Or rather who makes it? In this session we’ll consider different measures of software quality as well as interpersonal approaches that lead to the desired results. We will look at principles that promote relentlessly high standards, standards which might seem unreasonably high, while allowing engineers (humans) to thrive and grow. We’ll also evaluate the viability of alternative strategies like ‘cracking the whip’ or working longer hours.
