Speaker's Sessions

Managing highly distributed software projects 15:00 - 15:40
Over the past couple decades, software development efforts have progressively expanded in size. Initially projects were worked on by developers located in a single company headquarters, but this grew to encompass regional offices and eventually globally distributed teams.  On top of this, some projects are now worked on collaboratively through inner-sourcing and even full open-sourcing (with famous examples including the Linux Kernel, Android, Mozilla Firefox and OpenOffice).  Therefore, we would like to host a roundtable discussion to review the state of affairs for highly distributed software projects, the complexities of managing them and the tools that make it all possible.
