Community Smells: identifying and tackling communications issues in software development teams

In business, many losses, financial or otherwise, can be traced back to poor communication. In software development especially, communication is instrumental to project success. However, there are several communication issues – named ‘community smells’ – that recur in SD teams.

ITPE will host a conversation with Dr Alexander Serebrenik from Eindhoven Technical University on 25 October from 14:00 to 15:00 CEST online. Join it to discover what community smells are and what to do to ‘clear the air’ in your team (hint – making your SD team more diverse helps)!

Don’t hesitate to join us even if you have no relation to SD – the community smells manifest themselves in teams of many other sectors as well, so it will be an extremely valuable and relevant insight for you, no matter where you work!
