Panel Discussion «Is it true that "The best architectures […] emerge from self-organized teams"»?

Tim Ottinger will be hosting.

Notes and comments

Do the best architectures and designs come from self-organizing teams, or from solo specialists in quiet rooms? Is there some third option? We've all seen "astrotecture" from a non-coding architect, all out of touch with the reality of the application and its usage patterns. We've also seen design-by-committee that produces some odd mix of random elements and unnecessary features.

So what is this about self-organizing teams? Can it work? Has it worked? Has it ever been tried? How would someone even attempt it without falling into design-by-committee or groupthink?

Come explore.
