How to Make the Spotify Model Work for You - Hint: Don’t Copy Blindly (Win a digital copy of 'Competing with Unicorns'!) Use this code to get 25% off 'Competing with Unicorns' at ( until Dec 31, 2020: 0fc9b293b9 Interview with Jonathan Rasmusson, ex-Spotify employee and author of 'Competing with Unicorns' about the key elements of making the Spotify model work. Squads, tribes and guilds are the essential elements of the Spotify model, but there is a lot more to it. Leadership is the force that drives all the elements, makes the model come alive and deliver a great product. You get all the answers here about how that works. In this interview we're covering: Comparing traditional organizations vs the Spotify model The keys to effective engineering in the Spotify model What makes the squad system successful Contribute as an engineering manager Role of engineering leaders in the Spotify model Incentives to keep up developer motivation Performance management in the Spotify model How to improve when you're missing deadlines Excerpt from the interview: "In 2014, Sony came to Spotify to set up a partnership, because their music service was shutting down. This instantly became our biggest project, and a lot of squads started working on making Spotify work on PlayStation. I was coaching a team working on this. At one point, I realized that the launch date was coming up, and we were behind schedule. I thought we were in trouble. At the next all-hands meeting, I told everyone that the deadline was in jeopardy. In any other company I’ve been part of before, this would have been a big deal. Instead, the program director said, “Thank you for the information. We'll let the team tell us if they think there's a problem.” Then she simply moved on. This left me puzzled, because I expected the CEO and everyone else to get up in arms and demand action. This showed me how much trust Spotify puts in their teams."

JSJ 455: Introducing and Understanding Svelte and Sapper with Mark Volkmann
This week the panel is joined by Mark Volkmann to discuss Svelte and how it compares and differs from front-end frameworks such as React and Angular. Mark has written a book and has given talks about Svelte and also about Sapper, an application framework built on top of Svelte. He explains to the panel how Svelte components are defined differently than other JavaScript frameworks, and how they are actually compiled into the production code, which isn’t dependent on any external libraries. He also explains why and how Svelte forgoes the use of a virtual DOM, using direct DOM manipulations instead. Finally he describes Sapper and explains how it can be used to quickly and easily create Web-apps that use SSR, static pages generation and dynamic routing.
