The Future of Software Development

Newly appointed Optimizely CTO, Lawrence Bruhmuller, will kick off Developer Summit discussing the new normals in software development. After decades of leading and scaling engineering teams for high growth startups and large tech companies, Lawrence has seen the same problems crop up repeatedly for technical teams. There is a new way of delivering software that makes it possible to move fast and get it right. That new way is Progressive Delivery & Experimentation. When Progressive Delivery & Experimentation are used together, you have an efficient system for validating both quality and customer engagement across your development lifecycle. Lawrence will discuss the key principles driving software development innovation, how our engineering team puts this into practice, and the success he’s seen at other companies.


Lawrence Bruhmuller joined Optimizely as CTO to lead the technology strategy and overall engineering organization. He previously held VP of Engineering roles at WeWork, ClearSlide, and Symantec (Vontu), taking on entire software engineering organizations and leading them into the next phase of growth. Lawrence holds a Bachelors in Mathematics and Engineering from Harvey Mudd College, and a Masters in Applied Mathematics from Claremont Graduate University. He lives in Oakland, California, with his wife Amy and their three daughters.
