Software Development tends to be tribal -- the developers vs. the testers, the Agilistas vs. the waterfallists, the context-driven school vs. the certification folks, and so on. Matt Heusser will explain how and why these associations spring up, how to to take the best from a tribe -- and to know when to break from the pack. He will also discuss tribes in the workplace, how groupthink happens, and how technologists can use disobedience to fuel improvement in product, process, and reputation.
