In this month's letters section is an letter from Curtis Yanko entitled "Team Member Missing" ... Curtis writes:
I just read 'The Dream Team' (Apr 2005), and while I found it informative and entertaining, I couldnt help but feel a little empty. I expected Software Development, of all magazines, to recognize the importance of the configuration manager. This superhero would mix Martin Fowler's appreciation of adapting the right amount of agility for any given team with Stephen Berczuk and Brad Appleton's understanding of SCM patterns. Automated builds and continuous integration are what will really allow this Dream Team to make super-human progress!Many thanks Curtis!
