Distributed Agile Development

The world is going remote. How many people do you know that work from home 1 day a week? 2-3 days? Exclusively from home or half way around the world? Must work while travelling? These days, many of us are remote - even if only some of the time.

The benefits are enormous to both the company and the developer / remote worker. But many companies still have not embraced a distributed model, and the trend flies in the face of one of the 12 agile principles: 'The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation.'

Drawing upon experiences as a remote worker and scrummastering for distributed agile development teams at the Wikimedia Foundation, this session explores how we've pushed the envelope of that principle and shares best practices that empower successful semi or fully distributed agile teams. Not to spoil the ending or anything, but these best practices are also the key ingredients for success of ANY development team - co-located or distributed.

This session is aimed at folks working on an agile development team, but the subject matter is appropriate for anyone involved in anyone involved in software development practices.
