Challenges and Opportunities
Software Development Survival in a Dot Com World

The slide presentation for this meeting is available in a PowerPoint file. ( Microsoft Windows PowerPoint viewers are available for download from Microsoft.)

Everyone is webifying his or her business. Each day new start-ups are popping up with new ideas or re-packaging of old ideas. Established organizations with robust systems need and want to take advantage of this new marketplace by taking their business to the web. What does this all mean to the people who have to make this work? Plenty. It's a whole new ballgame and the playing field is not level. Understanding and embracing the differences and similarities in the design, development, and deployment of software development processes is necessary to be successful and save your sanity.

Our speaker, Lori Mueller, will take us along on her journey in adjusting and adapting to this new world. Her background is in application development - both custom development and product management for a software vendor. She is currently working with a dot com organization taking their vision to the web. Lori knows firsthand many of the potholes and challenges that are likely to be encountered.
