Upcoming Conference Sessions

Agile 2008 - August 4th - 8th
I will be doing three sessions at Agile 2008 in Toronto. If you are going, I hope you will consider attending one of my sessions. In any case, I look forward to meeting you there. Agile 2008 promises to be a truly great conference. The planning process was amazing with lots of great discussion of potential proposals.

Here are the three sessions that I will be doing:

Questioning the Perception of Agile (Full Listing)
There are many misperceptions of Agile. This session is mainly for Agile advocates. It is a facilitated discussion about common misperceptions/misconceptions and ways to alleviate them.

Calling All Agile Skeptics, The Curious, and Die-Hard Non-Agile (Full Listing)
If you are looking for a place to either air your skepticism/questions or respond (helpfully) to skeptics/questions, this will be a facilitated forum for both. Please bring an open mind, your sense of humor, and at least one anecdote to share. Participants will be expected to share the floor and help to keep the atmosphere fun and relaxed.

See Large Scale Multi-Stage Continuous Integration in Real Time (Full Listing)
Multi-Stage Continuous Integration is a way to scale CI to larger teams as well as a way to make CI more effective for teams of any size. For a preview, I have a series of posts on the topic. This session will show a real-time environment using AccuRev, Cruise Control, and Jira with hundreds of scripted developers resolving issues, making changes, causing builds to fail and pass, etc.

SD Best Practices, October 27th - 30th
