Many people find it comfortable and practical to work from home, or from cafes and parks, saving themselves the commute. Other teams are simply spread out across countries or continents.
Distributing the team collides with the agile practice of co-location (everyone together in one room). But thanks to technology, the communication barriers are being overcome with the help of video, chat-rooms, and asynchronous workflows (code-reviews instead of pair-programming, etc).
This time we'll meet to exchange experiences and ideas on how to best achieve distributed-team nirvana. What practices have you tried? What tools are there? Where do you get tips on how to get started?
