We’re excited to announce that from March 28-31, we’ll be hosting GitHub Galaxy, our virtual global enterprise event designed to help you supercharge developer productivity and transform your business.
How does developer productivity impact businesses at large? Well, let’s take a quick look at Telus, a communications and information technology provider in Canada. When their team switched to GitHub, they were able to streamline the developer workflow—and save $16.9M in the process.
That’s just one example of how innovative tools and developer-friendly features can create real, lasting change. And GitHub Galaxy is where you can get a glimpse of the latest and greatest tools (like GitHub Copilot) that are enabling devs to work smarter and helping business leaders achieve their goals, too.
Sign up for the event right here. (Registration is free!). And keep reading below for a sneak peek at some of the sessions and speakers.

Day 3 session highlights
Harness your organization’s productivity from day one with enterprise-ready tools
What gets in the way of developer productivity?

How to increase developer productivity by investing in efficient tooling
What’s most important to you in your business? The answer to that question, and whether or not you can prioritize it, is influenced by your team’s productivity. But for many organizations, things like tech sprawl, lack of collaboration, and time-consuming manual processes prevent developers from focusing on what matters most.
In this session, Florin Creanga, Principal Cross-Platform Architect at Vodafone, Pierre Emmanuel Friasse, DevOps Program Manager at Société Générale, and Tarun Arora, Regional Head of Software Engineering & DevOps at Avanade, will cover how he removed roadblocks from their developer’s workflows and increased developer productivity in their organizations.

How to increase developer productivity by investing in more efficient tooling
