Brian,

I'm guessing you won't be surprised that I've picked out a couple of quotes here. One from john ("The waterfall method that some people did: chip then software -- it's just not viable.") and another from warren ("Everybody's going Agile, on the software side and even on the hardware side.").

I'd sure be interested in understanding what "going agile" means and who "everybody" is. These comments make john and warren sound more optimistic about agile development than even I am :). I've seen optimism and interest building but I think we're several years away from any kind of movement or shift toward agile development. There are pockets of interest for sure but I've seen zero indication that everyone's doing it.

I think we gave up on the chip then software idea a long time ago. Unfortunately nothing to do with agile - just the need for co-development to meet schedules. As for everyone going agile - well, I cannot talk about software, but I dont see a lot of agile HW development going on - perhaps a little bit when we think about verification.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
