We build development teams based on individual ability to write code but development of a software project of any significance is beyond a single persons effort with a very particular set of skills. It requires a team of members with a number array of skills. It requires social skills. It requires tools and alignment. It requires shared contextual models.
This session will distill a couple decades of software consulting lessons learn in software engineering along with Ugandan fun to uncover the true way to developing more with less.
