The future of software development has no meetings, no bosses and no quality compromises. eXtremely Distributed Software Development (XDSD) is the methodology that absorbs best parts of Agile and resolves the problem of laziness, lack of motivation, and low quality.
We’re the first and the only team on the market that is creating software products in remotely distributed teams of freelancers, without using any meetings, chats, phone calls or emails. Our unique lightweight process called XDSD allows us to manage programming activities in micro-tasks of 30 minutes size. This is the next generation of Agile. We’re taking programming to the next level, where there are no overtime, frustration, missed deadlines, broken builds, low quality or unhealthy competition between engineers. There are a number of practical examples which will help to demonstrate XDSD in action.
