Developer Roles with Dave Curry and Fred George

Software teams are traditionally composed of roles such as project manager, developer, QA, and manager. What happens if you throw out all of those titles, hire mostly engineers, and ask them to do whatever they think is best? That is the core idea behind Fred George’s idea of Developer Anarchy.

In today’s episode, David Curry guest hosts an interview with Fred George. They talk about the structure of teams and the idea of developer anarchy. For a great complement to this episode, check out the Software Engineering Radio episode about developer anarchy.
