Extremely Distributed Software Development

    XDSD is a collection of principles of software development widely used in the open source world, but very rarely applied to commercial projects. When these ground rules (there are four) are properly implemented in a project, they guarantee higher quality of code and significantly reduce risks of failure.

    The XDSD principles are:

    • Everyone gets paid for verified deliverables
    • Defects are planned and don't block delivery
    • Quality-of-code metrics are CI gate conditions
    • VCS commits to are prohibited

    A successful implementation of XDSD in any particular project requires an existence of certain tools, technologies, and skills, which typical project teams rarely, if ever, possess. Institutionalization of these four rules in a software development team is a task of high complexity and will affect almost all aspects of business and social life of its members.
