When we discuss how to help teams modernize their technology stack, we often focus on a technical glide path. Not enough attention is given to the cultural aspects of building a team that is open to experimenting with new technologies and adopting them if the experiments go well. This talk will explore strategies and tactics to build such a culture through the lens of my team’s experiences at Ford Motor Company. A culture of experimentation has produced a number of pleasant side effect for our team, including allowing us to adopt new technologies such as Elm and Kotlin.
