BayPIGgies meeting Thursday August 27, 2009: Managing Software


There's a last minute change in the BayPIGgies meeting: Alex Martelli 

will present his thoughts on managing a software development team. 


Title: Managing Software Developers 

by Alex Martelli 

Managing software development projects can benefit from some

approaches that are rather different from most traditional management

techniques. Software developers operate with their own particular

mindset, culture, and reward system. To motivate and inspire a top

programming team, one type of ideal manager is a technical peer who

can jump into the code and work hands-on, together with the

developers, to solve thorny problems. Such technical involvement can

keep a project moving forward and help the manager build credibility

and trust within the team.

In this talk, Alex Martelli discusses some common management myths,

and shares some immediately useful advice for anyone involved in

managing software development projects.

NOTE BayPIGgies meets at the Symantec Vcafe, 

at Symantec's location at 350 Ellis Street in Mountain View.
