Yahoo and SolutionsIQ are really excited to welcome awesome Joe Justice to Bangalore India. Joe Justice is the ideator of Team Wikispeed: a team of volunteers distributed around the world who recently created a prototype car that is open source, modular and ultra-efficient in just three months, using processes (such as Agile, SCRUM, etc.) borrowed from software development, the world from which Joe comes from. Joe Justice is the CEO of Wikispeed.com.

WIKISPEED now uses agile processes to solve problems for social good; Joe has spoken to audiences at TEDx, Denver University, University of California Berkley, Google, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Rotary International, and others about social web application development, project methodology, and agile best practices.
