Communication, Consensus building and Collaboration

Why Your New Development Methodology Didn’t Fix All of Your Problems

Sachin Rekhi

Those who know me know that outside of software, music is a great passion of mine. But not just any music. More specifically, music from up and coming unsigned artists on YouTube.
