Ward Cunningham has worked for and consulted to daring startups and huge corporations. He has served as CTO, Director, Fellow, Principal Engineer and Inventor. He is best known for creating wiki. He leads an open-source project rebuilding wiki to solve more complex sharing situations addressing some of societies toughest problems. Ward founded movements in object-oriented, agile software, extreme programming and pattern languages. Ward lives in Portland, Oregon and works for New Relic, Inc.
The original wiki was founded to understand engineering at a social level, first within one company and then more broadly around the world. We asked not for advice but for personal experience, what parts worked and why.
The agile methods incubated in wiki have enabled a pace and scale of development unimaginable at its founding. Now, situated within rapid development, we have found a new way to observe and understand software and the people who make it.
In this keynote we describe our methods, similar to data warehousing, but with the same interests as the original wiki. Our system captures from existing data a broad picture of what has been built and puts this in service of its continuing evolution.Buy Tickets
