      At OOPSLA 2004 you have an opportunity to
      experience Extreme Programming in a day without
      programming. Instead, we will construct an
      artifact in an extreme way, using most of the
      practices of Extreme Programming.

      This exercise is open and would be beneficial to
      many different sorts of people: XP wannabees,
      potential customers, educators, in fact, anyone
      interested in how the practices fit together. If
      you are a manager, for example, who wants to see
      and experience XP, but are not a programmer this
      will give you an opportunity to see and evaluate
      how it might work.

      This exercise has also been used successfully to
      train willing, but inexperienced teams, including
      customers and managers.

      Each participant will take a role in the
      exercise: Constructor, Customer, or Tracker. All
      participate in the planning game in which the
      customers decide what is wanted and express
      requirements in the form of stories on cards. The
      Constructors estimate the time required to
      fulfill the requirement and then an iteration
      begins in which the constructors build the
      features for the current set of stories. The
      trackers try to keep everyone faithful to the
      practices.

      A retrospective of the day's activities will also be done.
