SEM SIG: Recovering From The Release Party



  • Recovering From The Release Party


    Presentation Overview

    The end game that was supposed to be a piece of cake turned out to be a grueling 9 week stretch of 90+ hour weeks. But, you did it. You managed to pull the system together and ship something that works. Will your release party end give your team a nasty hangover as they sort through a myriad of issues or will it energize them to hit the ground running to the next release? In this talk industry veteran Luke Hohmann will explore key issues associated with what happens after the release, giving you key "lessons learned" to make certain your next release party isn't a wake.
