Software Development Productivity - Why it's Important and Why it's Too Hard (Speaker: Peter Smith)

Date: 
Saturday, May 28, 2011 | 9:30am - 10:30am
Location: 
UBC Point Grey Campus (Rm 205, Student Union Building)


Abstract: All software companies strive to be productive. They want to produce more features in less time, with fewer bugs. Numerous techniques exist for improving productivity, but many of them are considered too hard to adopt and simply get thrown out before being tried. In this lecture, we'll examine why many productivity improvements fail, largely due to the financial bottom line, but also due to the organization's overwhelming focus on their other goals.

Industry Outreach

Why Collaborate with UBC Computer Science?

Preparing our students to become productive members of the workforce occurs primarily in the classroom, but we also provide students with the opportunity to engage with the local, national, and international firms in which they will ultimately be employed. Our students are highly motivated to find jobs where they can use their skills in stimulating and rewarding work environments, and we are highly motivated in helping them find those environments. To that end, we have a number of creative venues for connecting you with them.
