Ship it. Ship it real good.

I learned a great deal the last year at Prosper Marketplace. Despite the difficulties we faced as a team, there are definitely some good takeaways.

  • Organizing end-to-end teams allows full autonomy and to ship quickly.
  • Using metrics allows team members to focus on the right things.
  • Align how we work, but you don’t need to align the technologies used.
  • Agile works. Make an intentional effort to improve it.
