Presentation on "Peopleware: Productive Projects and Teams"

"The major problems of our work are not so much technological as sociological in nature". - Peopleware

Building good software products is a tricky business and though we often focus technical risks, it's the social issues that frequently derail projects.

Peopleware discusses a broad swath of the challenges that arise in our industry: office environments, staffing, overtime, team chemistry, software processes, etc. And it does so with a sense of humor and anecdotes while still treating the subject seriously with references to case studies and research that underlie much of the material.

Peopleware easily stands out as my favorite software book, a great read for anyone in the industry and a must read for anyone in management.
