anyone in the UK June 18th interested in an agile user experience tutorial?
- [Please excuse this self promotion - but at least it's on topic]
I'll be at XP2005 starting June 18th and have a tutorial on doing user
experience work in agile environments. It's a half day, bright and early
Saturday morning. What better way to spend your Saturday? ;-)

If you're considering attending, please contact me off list as soon as
possible. I print the handouts [which at 60 pages are sort of hefty] so I
need a count of how many to bring.
Being candid, attendance is low for this conference. [UPA & Agile2005 are
looking much better.] I'd like to get these numbers up. I won't rule out
that the smart people on England and the rest of Europe have this stuff
figured out - and it's just the Americans who need a bit of guidance.
Possibly I can attribute low attendance to that.
Finally, we do have pretty good attendance already for the agile usability
workshop being held this year at UPA in Quebec - but we could always use
more. The workshop isn't me or anyone else teaching anything - rather it's
an opportunity for usability people and agile people to get together to
discuss common issues encountered when combining usability practices in an
agile context. It's a full day, and useful results as well as good
conversation should come out of it. If you're in North America and have
time, consider attending:

Also there will be a full day boot camp on user experience work in an agile
environment at this tutorial:
