How do you conquer the problem of scaling software development to hundreds or thousands of simultaneous workers using thousands or hundreds of thousands of project artifacts during the course of development of a software product?

In A Virtual Environment Framework for Software Engineering, we illustrate how Columbia University researchers developed a groundbreaking framework which enabled the application of Virtual Environment techniques for the creation of Software Immersion Environments, in which project team members (developers, project managers, testers, etc.) were able to walk among project artifacts in a computer-generated 3D space as though they were real objects: a key advance in the history of software development.

Dr. Stephen E. Dossick received his B.A., MS., M.Phil., and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from Columbia University, and currently holds numerous patents in a range of technologies from user interface to internet scaling and core OS architecture.

Dr. Dossick is Vice President and CTO of Zumobi, and has more than ten years experience bringing new technologies from concept to creation, including management and technical architecture roles at Microsoft, BEA Systems, and several successful venture-funded startups.

While at Microsoft, Dr. Dossick was the lead architect on a groundbreaking technology making a profound impact on how people interact with operating system platforms today.
