GenAI promises to reshape how we deliver software and the roles engineering teams play in the future. As more companies roll out GenAI tools such as Github Copilot, they are naturally eager to understand and measure the impact it has on people and overall productivity. In this webinar, Matt Baxter (CTO, Caseware) and Stuart Pearce (Portfolio CTO, Hg Capital) will share their experiences, observations and learnings to date, thoughts on measuring impact, as well as their visions for the future of GenAI: how it will influence teams and businesses and ultimately change how we deliver products to market and support them.
