One Year, 93,210 Lines of Code, Ten Staff and Some Lessons Learned
James A. Duncan, Fotango

Track: Perl
Date: Thursday, July 10
Time: 5:15pm - 6:00pm
Location: Salon E

Fotango have recently finished a project that has been relatively large in scope. We were trying out several new ideas with the project, and have learnt a lot from the experience. The project was a success, but some things went better than others. This talk details how we did what we did, why we did what we did, and how we would do better next time. Specifically it will discuss code reusability, separation of layers and concerns, programmer's workspaces, open source, agile modeling, test first development, merciless refactoring, team autonomy, and a shared team goals.
