Collaborative Software Development
This page is still in development.
- Founded in 1994 in the wake of the phenomenal success of NCSA Mosaic, the
Federal Consortium brings together a number of
U.S. Government agencies in order
to forge a coherent software infrastructure for inter-agency co-ordination and collaboration,
with particular emphasis on harnessing new tools for sharing data, images and
interacting over distance: implementing "virtual work spaces" in short.
Several of the participating agencies are actively involved in mission-focused
computational science and engineering.
- The Habanero project at NCSA is investigating the enhancements in
distributed interpersonal communication made possible when single-user
computer software tools are recast as multi-user, collaborative work
environments. The Habanero developers believe that a fundamental
restructuring of the nature of distributed work is possible, and
desirable, in the interest of improving team efficiency and productivity.
