1,458 reasons to learn from science when developing software

In the Dora DevOps report 2021 the high performing teams deploy about four times a day, every day. The low performing teams deploy one to two times a year. 
The difference is 1,458 opportunities to create more value for the user and more profit for the company. 
How can we get there? This user group is a support group for people who want to apply scientific findings, from the Dora reports, to their daily work. 
We start with one meet up covering the basics in Accelerate and the State of DevOps reports. 
That event will also include a discussion on how to proceed. 
There will be suggestions available to start with and people willing to do the work to make things happen. 
You do not have to read the book, or anything else, to get value from attending.

**This event will also be live streamed on YouTube, so anyone can watch it here without signup:

Accelerate — the user group

What is Accelerate?
“Accelerate: The Science of Lean Software and DevOps: Building and Scaling High Performing Technology Organizations” is a book written by Nicole Forsgren, Jez Humble and Gene Kim.
It is based on the research in the State of the DevOps reports and covers how to measure, and improve, software delivery performance. 

Why a user group?
There is science on how to write software at scale! 
This user group is for language agnostic knowledge sharing on the findings in the State of the DevOps report and the book Accelerate.

According to the 2021 report, the 26% that perform the best have 6570 times shorter lead time from commit to deploy than the 7% lowest performer, while having a three times lower failure rate. 
That is the extremes. Where is your team?

The research also shows that the same practices that help deliver value, for the user and as company profitability, also decrease risk of burnout. 

So the software industry can do better in many ways. To quote Jurassic park “I bring scientists, you bring a rock star.” 

This user group is for those who listen to scientists, and what to help each other implement the findings in the research.
