· USAF's Kessel Run looks to industry for developers. (from Ken Heitkamp) The Air Force's agile software delivery system wants to expand its workforce, and is turning to industry for more people. During a recent virtual industry day, officials with the Air Force's Kessel Run program fielded questions from private companies what the branch was looking for, and teased future contracting and service opportunities. Essentially, Kessel Run is looking to hire companies to supply contractors with skills in software development and project management to work on their government-owned software repository. In responses to questions from would be participants, Kessel Run officials emphasized the program's need to house employees at its Boston headquarters to work in person, noting that past attempts to try remote approaches "failed." "We want people to want to be here," they said. "We are not trying to do remote, we are not trying to do distributed teams here. We are not there yet, we need people here working with us hand in hand under the same roof."
