about PARC forum
 

description

I have two audiences for my talk. First is people who do software as part of their research. I will tell folks listening from this perspective how I've learned to refine my craft. To try to make sense of my sometimes-non-sensical conclusions I'll make reference to a variety of other disciplines, in particular lean manufacturing. The second audience I will talk to are those who work to facilitate collaborative software development. I'll report what I've experienced and observed, and present as challenges the way XP stresses physical, communication, and programming infrastructure.
