Scaling software development and technology is probably one of the main challenges for organizations. Due to the COVID crisis, this becomes more critical and hard to solve, finding out how to “return to normal” or set up the new normal. In this talk, we will explore how the Linux Kernel scaled their software development, using decentralized models and distributed teams.
