Feedback form is now closed.
In order to achieve extraordinary coordination, starlings flock in formations called murmurations. These formations behave mathematically similar to metals becoming magnetized and snow crystals before an avalanche. These are examples of systems where collective phenomena emerge from the short-range interactions of individual participants. Studies show that change in direction (orientation) of individual participants affect group behavior more than velocity. This sort of relationship is known as a scale-free correlation. In this presentation, I will discuss how the concepts associated with murmuration, along with engineering and teams practices can be applied to software teams, in order to reach a state of criticality.
