Over the past decades, today, and in
the future, business contexts in software organizations and the common
ways of developing software are changing dramatically. Formation of
teams in distributed environments, virtual or not, calls for new ways of
working across geographic, temporal, and cultural boundaries. This,
however, also requires effective leadership approaches enabled through
systems, processes, technology, and people. The authors pulled together
this special issue to provide some ideas and strategies for
practitioners and open questions for researchers. The Web extra at is an audio recording in which author IEEE
Software Multimedia Editor Davide Falessi interviews Laurence Tratt and
Adam Welc, guest editors of the magazine's September/October 2014 issue,
about the field of programming languages.
