Trophy Winning Teams

Trophy Winning Teams

"Players don't win you trophies, teams win trophies". A team works better when they work together, no matter whether the goal is winning the World Cup or creating amazing websites.

Any development team, whether large or small needs to ensure that it works together as a cohesive unit in order to produce the best possible output. This can mean ensuring there's consistency in the code being written. Ensuring everyone stays up-to-date with the fast-moving pace of the web industry. As well as the ability for any project to be worked on by one or more team members at a time and have the ability to be handed over if a developer takes time off.

In this talk I'll take a look at how as a development team we can work better together, taking a look at some examples from great sporting teams. Covering everything from coding style guides, team training techniques, and code reviews, all the way through to Dutch Total Football; I'll cover a breadth of areas your team can use to improve their teamwork skills and create better cohesion and a great team atmosphere.
