We are excited to announce that we are currently working on a new book, “Developer Experience Unleashed: The Art of Crafting Delightful and Efficient Developer Environments.”
As part of this project, we are seeking contributions from industry leaders, influencers, and developers like you to share your insights, experiences, and perspectives on Developer Experience (DX).
In Chapter XIII, “Interviews and Expert Insights,” we want to feature your thoughts on the challenges and successes in improving DX, as well as your vision for the future of this crucial aspect of software development.
We are particularly interested in hearing from individuals with diverse backgrounds and roles, those at different stages of their careers, and those involved in interdisciplinary collaboration or specialized domains like game development, data science, machine learning, IoT development, and cybersecurity.
Below, we have outlined specific questions for each section of the chapter. We would greatly appreciate your input and encourage you to share your experiences with us!
