Looks like the Waterfall Alliance has opted to host their 2006
conference in Niagara Falls on the 1st of April.
A very interesting set of tutorials/sessions including:
Take Control of Your Team's Decisions NOW! by Ken Schwaber
Avoiding the Seven Pitfalls of Lean by Mary Poppendieck
Pair Managing: Two Managers per Programmer by Jim Highsmith
Two-Phase Waterfall: Implementation Considered Harmful by
Robert C. Martin
User Interaction: It Was Hard to Build, It Should Be Hard
to Use by Jeff Patton
Please note that the website indicates:
Because it's possible you may want to attend all sessions, Waterfall
2006 features no concurrent sessions. All sessions are run
sequentially for your enjoyment. However, since in a waterfall
process we don't want testers to know anything about coding, or
programmers to know anything about design, and so on, you can only
attend sessions that match your job function. When you register to
attend you'll be asked to select an appropriate job function. When
sessions that are not relevant to you are running you will be required
to sit idle in the lobby.
