Collaborative software development, model driven development, agile development – all key elements or methodologies to developing software. Many development teams are developing software with different renditions of what and how these development methodologies can work. For many of us “collaborative software development” starts with a white board session, these software design sessions can be very effective if the team is co-located though it still has its hang-ups: Do we take a picture of the design on the white board, to be able to redraw it the next go around and send it to distributed team members? Teams enjoy the insight of model driven development though there is a perception that Unified Modeling Language (UML) is hard to learn and not all stakeholders can or will learn it.
