What can a company gain from exchanging developers with another company? Who is the right person to send to such an exchange? And how do we measure – and implement – what we learn in this process.
In April 2018 the R&D department at monday.com took part in a developer exchange program with Chegg. Two Fullstack developers from each of the companies have changed roles for two weeks, each one taking an integral part in the other company.
In Episode 27, Lior Krengel spoke with Daniel Lereya, VP R&D at monday.com, and Rodik Hanukaev, then a Full Stack developer at Chegg, that have shared their experience with her.
In this Recap episode, we bring the main insights from this episode – What were the logistics, with which company should you collaborate, and why this exchange didn’t just provide us with insights about other companies – but also allowed a lot of reflection on internal processes.
