Making Agile Real: the Agile2009 conference
The official Agile2009 is out, and it looks fantastic! The Agile2009 conference, in Chicago, August 24 to 28, is chock-a-block with interesting and useful sessions with a swathe of Agile rock stars. I was involved with organizing the Tools stage this year, and I can confirm that the selection process was hard. There are way too many great sessions to fairly highlight just a few, but sessions like the CI vendor cage-fight should prove very popular, and don't miss on any account the "Programming with the stars" sessions at lunchtime!
I will be giving three talks at Agile2009 this year:
- Lasse Koskela and myself will be giving a talk on Executable requirements: BDD with easyb and JDave.
- I will be presenting some very practical techniques about managing releases and automating the deployment phase using tools like Maven, Nexus, JIRA, and Bamboo or Hudson in Automated deployment with Maven and friends - going the whole nine yards.
- Finally, I will be giving a fairly detailed round-up of the latest in development life cycle tools and techniques in Java Power Tools - getting it all together
It will be my first time in Chicago, and should be an excellent conference, and a great opportunity to meet up with some very cool people - I'm really looking forward to it. See you there!
