SDW Tech Talks: Challenges & Solutions for Building Software Beyond Borders

Video Tech Talks

Building software to function across international borders takes more work than simply sending the micro-copy to a translator.

What do different cultures need out of their UI and functionality? How do environmental factors play out when building for worlds far different than our own?

MAC OS developer (and SDW Tech Talk regular) Douglas Welton of Einstein’s Legacy will walk us through a survey of the language, cultural, and environmental issues that make building software for international distribution “more fun.”

This presentation provides an overview of the issues involved in creating software that “just works” in a multi-national marketplace. In particular, Douglas focused on the structural, implementation and cultural considerations that have to be integrated into the software development process in order to achieve successful results.
