Lisa's Mugshot


Author & advisor


Working together and working as one

Creating the content and applications that drive our collective online experience requires us to do our best work as individual developers, writers, and architects.

It also requires that we work together as at team. Sometimes those teams are small and sometimes they are large. Sometimes it’s easy to collaborate. Most of the time it is not.

In this talk, Lisa will talk about what it takes to govern the development of what we put online—and how to feel good about it. She will outline the three main dynamics which make collaboration difficult and offer two strategies for overcoming those obstacles.
