Devving on the Edge

Sometimes, you have your development processes all figured out: your integration tests are green, your CI system is a well-oiled code-deploying machine, and your developers' IDEs are tweaked to perfection. But the more comfortable you are, the scarier change becomes. New ideas start to sound worrisome. Will writing code in a different language kill your team's momentum? Will targeting a new platform render your prior technology investments useless? Must innovation be a threat to the status quo?

This talk will be a case study in introducing new technology to an established development team. We added Rust, WebAssembly, and edge computing to a product that used none of those things - and didn't lose our wits or sacrifice quality doing it. Learn how we prepared, what we guarded against, and where we got lucky.
