Diaspar Software and Thoughtworks is proud to present another installment of the XP Day North America series: XP Day Manhattan taking place on October 13, 2007.
The focus of XP Day is to bring top extreme programming practitioners to North American XP communities to share their successes, failures and perspectives on how to release high-value software sooner.
Our program for Manhattan includes:
1) A keynote address by Steve Freeman. Steve is a fixture in the London software development community, a regular organizer of the original XP Day, well known for his contributions to test-driven development practice and co-recipient of the 2006 Gordon Pask Award.
2) A tutorial by JB Rainsberger, a recipient of the 2005 Gordon Pask award. JB will talk about why XP works using the Theory of Constraints model developed by Goldratt.
3) A tutorial by George Dinwiddie, a respected member of the XP community, and author of an insightful blog about coaching XP teams: http://blog.gdinwiddie.com. George will talk about sustainability at multiple levels in XP.
4) Open Space. There’s plenty of room, the space is superbly run and the conversation is lively. Collaborate intensively with both local and invited advanced practitioners on issues that interest you most.
Cost of the conference is $249 (US) and includes breakfast and lunch. Registration is limited to 100 attendees. To register visit http://www.xpday.info. For group rates, contact me at the address provided in the header of this message.
