A lot has changed since Marc Andreessen published his well-known essay “Why Software Is Eating The World.” Today software is impacting the lives of people far outside the realm of just the tech world on a daily basis. There is software being built that will enable physical distancing and clean air everywhere from factories to Broadway theaters to museums to schools to sports arenas in the wake of COVID-19. There are new insights into how remote work upended the way wealth is managed, real estate is sold, students are taught and government and medical services are delivered - and how software is making that happen. Even the ways that software teams are delivering these capabilities and how they are handling the new pressures of software development during the current crisis at the level of people, processes, and tools have drastically changed.
In this session, we will discuss how software and technology are being applied in new ways within a different domain or industry to help the world change for the better, especially due to the onset of COVID-19 and its aftermath. 
Attendees will:
  • Experience a deep dive into various industries that have been disrupted and advanced through software. Whether pharma, finance, or entertainment, we will dissect each sector’s response through software to the current crisis and the likely outcomes. 
  • Gain an understanding of how software is impacting the world around them and beyond their own specific current focus, as well as how other teams are navigating the changes in how software is delivered in the current crisis. 
  • Hear relevant ideas and circumstances from peers in their industry that will help them navigate these uncharted times.
