I’m giving a keynote address at the New Jersey Software Process Symposium on October 14th … somewhere in the wilderness of New Jersey. (All I know is that I’ve checked in at the New Brunswick Hyatt Regency hotel on the evening of the 13th, in the midst of pitch-black darkness all around, and I’ve got a Google Maps set of directions to get me to the conference tomorrow morning). I’m supposed to be talking on the “Impact of Web 2.0 on Software Development, Project Management and Process Improvement”:
But after a week of watching a gut-wrenching roller-coaster ride on the New York stock market, and reading various gloom-and-doom predictions of bad economic times ahead, I thought it would be more appropriate to replace that talk with a presentation on “Death-March 3: Software Processes in the New Hard Times”:
If you click on either icon, you’ll download a 12.2-megabyte PDF file that actually contains both presentations. So you can look at either one of them, depending on whether you’re feeling optimistic or pessimistic. Enjoy … or don’t.
