Speaking the same language, whether human or computer, isn't enough. The TIMTOWTDI features that Perl provides are great until you have to pick up where another dev left off. Your team must share the same conventions in order to communicate efficiently. So what is everyone else doing? Come find out what other companies have decided to enforce to improve their collaboration. There will be examples of essential coding style guides and how to ensure they are followed. See some highly opinionated git best practices from both big and small shops. Improve your logging by using one API everywhere that ships to one location and includes invaluable context. And see some demos of team collaboration tools like Slack and Jira that build cohesion between devs, code, and bugs.
