The One About Being Glue

In this episode, we cover Tanya Reilly's powerful talk - "Being Glue".

Deep down, we all (hopefully) know there's a lot more to a successful software project than code. There are planning meetings, design reviews, architecture deep dives, getting buy-in from partner teams, and the list goes on. All of this is the glue that holds a team and their work together and someone needs to do it. But who should do it, and how do we properly reward them for doing it (spoiler: we get this part wrong a lot)?

If you've ever done thankless work like this for your team, listen to this episode. If you have never done this kind of work for your team - also listen. There's a decent chance you're forcing someone else into it.
