Software Development and Game Theory

Wednesday, July 23, 2008 – 5:00 AM

Alistair Cockburn (pronounced co-burn) maintains that software development is a cooperative game.

Others have described software development as exactly the opposite, a game where the participants do not cooperate – see Analyzing Software Development as a Noncooperative Game (pdf).

I think I’m with Alistair on this one while the alternative point of view is interesting I think their argument is somewhat flawed.
