Keynote: Sentry Can't Fix This
Before we can improve our developer experience, we need to revisit what it was like in “simpler” times. David Cramer kicks off DEX with a look back to the era of Blink-182, POGS, and most importantly, PHP. You’ll then hear the not-so-secret focus that David has had while improving the developer experience with Sentry.

Stepping Stones Not Milestones
No engineering leader is capable of sitting down and charting a straight-line path to success on a complex project. Real engineering is an iterative process of delivering incremental value while illuminating unknown unknowns. The solution to executing on complex projects without over-engineering, over-resourcing, over-designing and overly risk-taking is usually re-scoping the project into a carefully formulated set of stepping stones.
