It was an interesting challenge since what we had a not so simple task to do, which was to
- finish a major release of an existing product
- ramp down the existing team in Sydney
- create a new team distributed between Melbourne and Xi’an
- transfer the knowledge as smoothly as possible, so the new team could start delivering new functionalities as soon as possible
It was great to talk about our experience for the first time, and the amount of questions that came from the audience showed us that it is a interesting (and controversial) topic for other people as well.
The slides are available here, unfortunately it’s hard to get all the content just based on them, but just get in touch with us if you have any.
