Welcome to Calavista Conversations. If you’re responsible for delivering software on time and on budget - or at least wish *someone* were responsible for doing that - then this podcast might be for you. Some 2/3 of software projects don’t deliver as promised. If you want to be in the successful minority - if you believe that you studied computer science, and not computer arts - then join us as we talk about best practices and how people have tuned their development processes for success. And maybe we’ll take a look at some total failures, and try to understand how they went wrong - and hopefully we can all avoid falling into that basket of the 2/3 majority.
