Software development today is done in collaborative situations, where clients, developers, managers, testers etc are located in different parts of the world, speaking different languages and living very different lives. Research into global software development is diverse; some are focusing on the processes and methods, others are focusing on the design of technology supporting the work – however few have investigated the basic nature of the collaborative work which emerges these settings. In this keynotes I will report from our ongoing interdisciplinary research project through the last 5 years investigating the Next Generation Tools and Processes for Global Software Development (nexgsd.org), and particular explore the journey which began with designing technologies for collaboration across distance to continue of a future path for designing technologies for collaboration across politics.
SEAA is the Euromicro Conference series on Software Engineering and Advanced Applications (SEAA) is a long-standing international forum for researchers, practitioners from business and industry, and students to present and discuss the latest innovations, trends, experiences, and concerns in the field of Software Engineering and Advanced Applications in information technology for software-intensive systems.
The 41st Euromicro Conference on SEAA will take place in Funchal, Madeira, Portugal, in August 26-28, 2015.
