Engineers to VPs accelerate shipping with GitHub Projects


Organizations today are under pressure to do more with less. That's why productivity is such an important issue. And that's where project planning comes in.

Project planning is a critical tool for organizations of all sizes. It can help you ship products faster, increase efficiency, and improve communication among team members. In this demo, Senior Software Engineer Jed Verity will show you how to use GitHub Projects to boost productivity in your organization. You'll learn how to create and manage projects, set deadlines, and track progress. You'll also learn how to use project planning to resolve conflicts and make better decisions about priorities. By the end of this talk, you'll have a better understanding of how project planning with GitHub Projects can help your organization succeed.

About our Speaker:
Having been both a manager and engineer at GitHub, not to mention a lifelong productivity nerd, Jed is deeply interested in tools and practices that help teams and individuals do their best work. Before joining GitHub, he was a Senior Manager of Systems Architecture at Maxar Technologies, but across a career that spans multiple decades he has been a founder, CTO, and, maybe the best title of all, "Fulfillment Manager" at Canto Software, Inc.

Jed also speaks 5 languages and holds a PhD in Tibetan Buddhism, but that can be hard to explain in the context of a career in technology, so he usually includes those facts in bios just to sound smart and interesting.

Jed lives in Charlottesville, VA with his family.
