Distributed teams - a pragmatic way


AW seminar

FOOD:
Yes

LEVEL:
Intermediate


We will start this evening with mingle, pizza and beer.

Is there a sure-fire methodology that will make distributed teams work? Possibly.

Can a dogma save your deadline and make your wife and kids happy? Perhaps.

Or is it time to be pragmatic and realize that it all starts with people and ends with people - with some coding in the middle? In this session we'll cover a mosaic of tips and techniques, from timezones to cultural gaps, that work across the world. This just might be the toolbox you need.

Oh, and by the way - you will know the secret behind all those methodologies promising to solve the distributed enigma - if you promise not to tell.
