Competing with Unicorns with Jonathan Rasmusson

Oct 3, 2019 · Calgary, Canada

How the world’s best ship software and work differently.

Today's tech unicorns develop software differently. They don't do text book Agile. They certainly don't do Scrum. What they do do is something all together completely different. Something that enables them to:

- scale like an enterprise
- while working like a startup.

This talk is about taking you behind the scenes, and showing you how the Googles, Facebooks, and Spotify's of the world do it.

- How they scale
- How they organize
- How they empower
- And how they trust

In essence how they work.

This will not only help you and your teams work better. It will give you insight into how these companies move so fast, how they innovate so quickly, and what the rest of us need to compete and keep up.


Jonathan is an experienced software engineer who has helped some of the world’s most innovative companies ship software.

At Spotify, Jonathan helped ship the Sony Playstation, Google Chromecast, Facebook Messenger and iMessage Spotify integrations. At Microsoft he wrote the Smart Client Architecture Guide. And as a consultant at ThoughtWorks Jonathan helped companies like British Petroleum, AMP Capital, and Toyota Australia take their first tentative steps into the world of Agile.

Jonathan is the author of The Agile Samurai and The Way of the Web Tester.
