Anna & Bruno are passionate product professionals working at Ocado Technologies. They are both strong advocates of a user-centric approach and customer dialogue, and in trying to bring a little order to chaos wherever possible.
Their 'Legacy Land' talk will cover - "Why are Legacy systems so frustrating? Why do we ponder about its complexities and constraints? Why does it knock us down so hard when we come across it in our new jobs. Well, we can’t answer all your questions about Legacy Land, but we can surely provide some useful insight on how to deal with it. Most importantly, making it fun and creating the Legacy everyone will talk about."
