In fall 2004, Ford Motor Company chartered a team of Perl/CGI developers to implement a robust 80-table J2EE application with assistance of a single Java consultant.

The lessons learned are emerging as an application development evolution – Pattern Enabled Development – a catalyst for business innovation.

Share in the excitement as Marvin takes us on a multi-year journey across four continents in pursuit of an enabling approach to global application development. And dissect lessons learned for applicability within your sphere of influence!
