I'm in Philadelphia, at the Philly ETE conference, for the second year in a row. I took a break from working on my slides (my talk is tomorrow afternoon) to carefully consider which talks I want to attend while I'm here. So, for anyone interested, here's the lineup:
- Session 1: Acceptance Test Driven Development – Connecting Business and Technology
- Session 2: Exhibitionism in Software Development
- Session 3: (skipping for last minute talk prep)
- Session 4: On the Road – The Pair Programming, Journeyman tour (yes, with Corey Haines)
- Session 5 is my talk, "Practical Scala", but if I weren't speaking, I would be attending David Chelimsky's "Executable Documentation: Exploring the Spec in RSpec".
On Friday, I'm looking forward to:
- Andy Hunt's keynote: "Refactoring Your Wetware"
- Session 1: Legally Agile / The Forecast is Cloudy. No, that's not just one talk. I'm going to have to try to catch bits of each.
- Session 2: Diets Don't Work: Getting Sustainable Results with Scrum / JRuby: Agile Glue for the Enterprise. Same problem with scheduling here!
- Lunch keynote: Lessons from the Obama Online Campaign
And then, I'll be taking off, so that I can get back to Michigan in time to tuck the kids into bed, but if I were staying through the end of the day, I would have hard choices between James Ward's Architecting Flex RIAs, Clojure and the Robot Apocalypse: Needfuls for Newbies, Introduction to Groovy, and the Agile Round Table: Scrum in the Real World. Looking forward to both days! I'm thrilled with the content here, and the organizers do a fantastic job.
