Developers: When and how to push back -- and why your company needs you to

As startup developers we can get buried in feature requirements, bug fixes, operations tasks, and forget that sometimes what our product needs is for us to say 'no'. We'll be talking about the concerns we should be mindful of before starting our next task including: simple questions for identifying true requirements, strategies for incrementally baking features into a product, methods of exploring lower-risk alternatives, and communicating hidden development costs.

This is for any developer who gets caught up in the day-to-day and needs a reminder to take a step back.
