TOPIC: Excellence under Uncertainty

Software is hard. Getting the product right is challenging enough, and unless you're working alone, you're contending with people and process in a daily struggle to get things done. As product builders, how do we guarantee excellence when so much can go wrong? Slack product lead Paul Rosania gives an overview of the many risks that face software teams, and a recipe for building exceptional products. 

About the speaker: Paul Rosania leads the Core Product team at Slack, where he and his team build the interfaces millions of people use to get their work done each day. Previously, he led the Timelines Team at Twitter, where he spearheaded the transition to an algorithmically ranked feed. Paul graduated Dartmouth College with a BA in Computer Science and has spent the last decade building software he hopes brings people closer together.
