What if you could build it from scratch? From wasteland to fearless machine

Level: Intermediate

Expressen is the fastest growing media site in Sweden. In 2013 I joined Expressen with the goal of, together with a few others, build a new development department. This is the story of how we went from zero to 60 developers. This is the story of how we gradually went from a monolithic .NET CMS to a plethora of small applications built with Node. This is the story of how we built an agile and fearless culture.

While I don't have all the answers, far from it, few have the opportunity to build a new development department from scratch in a billion SEK company with a strong brand and I'll share some of the lessons that we've learnt. Both technical and organizational.
