  • Software Cycles – Forget waterfall, dump iterative, embrace “Remarkable Themed Releases”, strive for constant improvement, and a clean backyard
    Collaborate instead of Compete – The focus is on the end-user. Not on how to go one up on your competitor.
    Data is the new King – Like we saw in the earlier slides, Data (and accompanying metadata) becomes the most important piece in the Web 2.0 Game. Rip, Mix, Burn, Mash, all happens ON TOP OF data.
    Programming Languages – It is going to be an alphabet soup. So, focus instead on algorithms and mathematics. They will be your unique differentiators. Not the next latest shiny domain specific programming language.
    No longer a lone wolf – Gone are the days of the lone wolf, antisocial programmer nerd. She now needs to collaborate, join hands, develop together, probably even with total strangers from across the world. Communication skills become much more important than before.
