This paper discuses how software development is often more about people - collaboration, communication, and coordination - than technology, developing "soft skills" such as meeting-management techniques is becoming more important. The author recommends to many people to learn more about Robert's Rules of Order, to take a class or a workshop, to read a book about it, and to go beyond the surface and the funny jargon to transpose what they learn about formal debates to the more informal meetings that now make up a large chunk of a software practitioner's life. Besides, your hockey club, Parent-Teacher Association, or your local IEEE Computer Society chapter will love you for your useful facilitator skills. The author suggests that all software practitioners learn more about Robert's rules.
