Distributed software development is one of the hardest challenges in the software industry, since it's hard to keep up with good team principles as collaboration and ownership when you are working with a team in multiple countries.
During this presentation, we are going to describe how, during a 3-week period in China, we have built an autonomous team out of a group of people, transfered knowledge and planned a new product for the REA Group, while trying to overcome language and cultural differences.
We are going to describe this experience by sharing the constraints we had and the story about what we did in China, which included design workshops, knowledge sharing exercises and building trust.
We will also speak about the learnings and benefits obtained in this experience, and how a traditional communication method such as face to face can deliver a successful product.
