This year I’ve decided to propose an “experimental” session: a wall will be available during the conference and the attendees will be asked to put their questions/puzzles about agile, with a special focus on real life projects.
The wall will be handled like a retrospective one, clustering common subjects and people will be asked to vote, then I’ll choose the most interesting and I’ll talk about it .
This will give me a chance to understand how and where agile software development is going in Italy and it will be quite a challenge: I won’t bring my Mac, I won’t prepare anything, pure improvisation!
Surely I’ll blog about it right after, and hopefully I’ll find some time & energies answering to some of the unanswered questions on the blog.
It will be an honor to speech after the key note of Tim Mackinnon at the AgileDay organized by Marco in Bologna, I’ll present how we went from amber to green in four weeks in our last project in London, presenting a speech that Pat and I were setting up for the Xpday in London, but we were fired off cos it was “just” a description of a perfectly aligned agile/XP project, they said(!).
It will be also cool to speech again about Domain Driven Design at the Javaday in Rome, with 700 expected attendees that’s now the biggest Java Gig in Italy, it will be the 3rd refactoring of the slides presented since this summer, more focus on mocking, testing and IOC as well, since in Turin I had a lot of questions about it.
Slides in English coming soon here, after the events.
Back to speech! I am very happy about this, my last one was at Java Conference Last year and it’s really time to go present something.
I’ll talk about the Importance to be Driven at the European School of Agile Praticse, in Varese.
