How to Start an Environmental Software Project

Abstract : How to lay the grounds for interdisciplinary teams to start communicating and collaborating effectively remains an obstacle for many environmental software efforts. In this work, a structured, participatory interactive method is introduced: The Inception Workshop aims to assist interdisciplinary teams at the start-up stage of an environmental software project, with the goal to explore the solution space and for early requirements analysis. It is an ice-breaker event to engage heterogeneous actors to open up, express their interests, and start working together to identify and solve common problems. Two installations of the workshop were conducted, and participant familiarity to the problem and technologies involved were captured with pre- and post-workshop questionnaires. Participant responses proved statistical significance in increasing participant confidence with concepts across disciplines.
