This editorial article is a part of Software Development Month of's editorial calendar.

At’s 2020 Developers Conference, we heard from a dozen-plus software developers and other technologists on chaos engineering, hackathon project scaling, trends shaping their workplaces and the like.

We aim to keep that conversation going with Software Development Month of this year’s editorial calendar.

We write for — not just about — the local pros building innovative apps, websites and products. And following up on 2019’s Tech Stacks Month, this October, we’re dedicating extra reporting time to talking with those technologists, with an aim to dig deeper into the processes and trends behind the code.
