“Government community development is a contact sport” @guyma @ForgeMil #pfgov #gov20
Vision: Develop a streamlined software development process for GIG (Global Information Grid) DoD
Approach: Collaborative environment supporting all stakeholders through the lifecycle
Why are we doing this? (Community Rationale)
Software code has become central to how the war fighter is able to conduct missions… DoD must pursue an active strategy to manage its software knowledge base, use, re-use, etc.
We have high-level support:
GEN Cartwright USMC Joint Chiefs Vice
DISA Dir LTG Carroll F. Pollett USA
DISA Vice Dir RADM Elizabeth A Hight USN
Collaborative Development and Test platform
Tools, standards, processes
Gov, Indus, Academia
First capability rolled out:

projectforge – on-demand application devel tools (due FY 2010, prob this Oct)
TestForge – common test and eval environment – due early 2011

We’re taking a cloud-computing approach
Cloud cluster for testing, etc.
Attempt to deliver a terrific and full software development process
