Architecting For Focus, Flow, and Joy: Beyond The Unicorn Project: A Fireside Chat with Gene Kim, Mike Nygard, and Carin Meier

When I wrote “The Unicorn Project,” I wanted to explore what invisible structures are required to truly enable developer productivity — this resulted in The Five Ideals, which included 1) Locality and Simplicity, 2) Focus, Flow, and Joy, 3) Improvement of Daily Work, 4) Psychological Safety, and 5) Customer Focus.

In this panel, I interview two people whose achievements I genuinely admire, and explore about their most fun (and least fun) moments coding, and how functional programming practices have helped enable those amazingly fun and productive times programming, both at the individual- and team-levels.  I ask them about how they can be unleashed at a team-of-teams scale, and what technology leaders at all levels can do to help!
