Architecture-Centric Development in Globally Distributed Projects

(Lightning talk, 10 min) [ Slides ]

Author(s): Joachim Sauer (C1 WPS GmbH)
Session: Distributed
Session chair: Patrick Kua (Thoughtworks)
Date: Thursday, 3 June 2010: Main Conference
Time: 10:30-12:00
In this talk architecture-centric development is proposed as a means to strengthen the cohesion of distributed teams and to tackle challenges due to geographical and temporal distances and the clash of different cultures. A shared software architecture serves as blueprint for all activities in the development process and ties them together. Architecture-centric development thus provides a plan for task allocation, facilitates the cooperation of globally distributed developers, and enables continuous integration reaching across distributed teams.
