Ward is a well-known figure in the software development community, in part because of the wiki and design patterns collectively known as "Extreme Programming" or "XP." In the interview, he discusses his interest in social software and how self-organizing open source projects can achieve success using agile development techniques. He noted the combination of social software and open source is what brought him to the Eclipse Foundation, where he is Director of Committer Community Development.

Ward studied at Purdue University before co-founding Cunningham & Cunningham, Inc. He served as Director of R&D at Wyatt Software and as Principal Engineer in the Tektronix Computer Research Laboratory. He is also founder of the Hillside Group. Ward is the co-author of Fit for Developing Software and The Wiki Way.
