Devp with geo-distributed teams

Devp with geo-distributed teams

Devp with geo-distributed teams

Has anybody here worked/managed in a development model with 2 (or more) teams in wide geographically disjoint places.. like (US) + (China or India)?

In particular,
1. what source control model was used?
2. What kind of development was being done?
3. How tightly integreted was the work? (were the individual teams working on tightly coupled modules etc?)

Any inputs and experiences shared will be highly appreciated?

Thanks in advance


Asked clerk for self-help section. “That will defeat purpose.”

RE: Devp with geo-distributed teams

Hi there,

We use a product called Source Off Site for this purpose.


It works well. One team of devleopers use a local copy of VSS and another team, in India, use Source Offsite to link into this same database.

Hope this helps,
