Building a 100 MPG Road Car in 3 Months

Car BodiesManaging a collaborative multinational team in real-time using Agile/Lean/Scrum/XP, Joe Justice will describe how he ported software-team best practices back to their roots to compete for 10 million in the Progressive Insurance Automotive X Prize. Driven by a desire to optimize automotive performance while minimizing cost and environmental impact, Joe formed WIKISPEED, a small, volunteer-driven team. They are manufacturing a revolutionary 100 mpg, gasoline powered, four-seat car with a target price of $17,995. Joe will walk through how they are accomplishing the seemingly impossible.

Joe Justice is a Seattle-area lean-software consultant and entreprenerd, and a registered automotive manufacture since 2007. In 2010, Joe’s X Prize team, WIKISPEED, tied for 10th place in the mainstream class of the Progressive Insurance Automotive X Prize, a $10 million challenge for 100+ MPGe automobiles. Joe has spoken on social web application development, project methodology, and agile best practices to audiences at Denver University, University of California Berkley, Google, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Rotary International, and others. Joe is currently on assignment at Zynga nd CEO of WIKISPEED.
