Philosopher George Santayana once famously said that those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it. From the Trojan War to U.S. foreign policy in the 20th century, history is littered with stories of success and failure. In this session, we'll take a look at some of those stories and apply the lessons learned from them to web project management. Drawing upon nearly two decades of experience building websites of all shapes and sizes for clients both big and small, we'll look at the various challenges posed by different kinds of Web projects and specific strategies for avoiding failure and achieving success. Not only will you come away with a better understanding of how to approach your next web development project, but you'll also gain a greater appreciation for some of history's lesser-known stories.
