Do you manage projects? Software development projects? Are they big projects or small projects? Are there many or few developers? Is it complex software or easy to understand? Are you developing for external customers or your own organization? Are there many opportunities for testing or only a few? Can you develop new code while testing, or is development dependent on test results? Are transient coding errors tolerated or not? Do you need Agile or Waterfall Development?

Let's discuss different coding methodologies with Darcy Casselman and Eric Gerlach, Senior Director at Oracle/Netsuite. We'll have our regular Round Table discussion, where we can all contribute our expertise.
