The production of software is a labour intensive activity. Given the scale of software projects related to current and future HEP experiments, it is worth trying to improve the knowledge of the PEOPLE involved, the organization of the software development PROCESS and the TECHNOLOGY used in the various aspects of this activity. The goal is better systems at lower cost and happier users of the software.
