This month Kate Heddleston, a software engineer in the Bay Area, will share how insufficient onboarding leads to ‘team debt,’ an analogy she makes to technical debt, where poor system design slows down the system. Kate will also provide some guidance on some fairly immediate things individual teams can do to reduce the debt.
