Guide is the right word for this book Dec 11 2011
By Filippo Lanubile - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a modern guide for those in the software business who need to decide whether going global and have to face the critical challenges of distributed development. The book is easy to read without loosing depth. I appreciated very much the checklists as a practical and effective management tool.
Good Book for the Distributed Team Newbie, Terrible Book for the Distributed Team Vet Dec 12 2013
By Basketcase456 - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had to buy this book for a class I was taking on Distributed Teams and Development. As someone who worked with distributed teams on a regular basis, I hated this book. I felt the information was not laid out very well and sometimes redundant as though trying to add length to the book. I even found myself saying frequently "this is not what my team does at all."

That being said, if I had no clue how to work with people in different locations and cultures, this book is a good primer on basic methodology for distributed teams and distribution. I just don't know if it is something a book needed to be dedicated to teaching.
Textbook for class April 2 2013
By Not Mark Twain - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This textbook was required for a class that I took called, "Distributed Software Development". The topic is fairly new. The book was published in 2012. I found this book to be a quick, easy, read. It has a lot of helpful, easy to remember, and practical advice. As a student, I welcome a textbook like this. I can read it wherever in a short amount of time. I do not have to spend hours reading the textbook; like, I have had to do for other classes. Since, it is small and paperback, it is very portable.
