Announcing: Deep Agile 2009: Agile for Embedded Systems
Sponsored by Agile Bazaar, New England's agile community hub
Join us for a two-day deep dive into Agile practices for
embedded systems. We'll get beyond superficial prescriptions
and cookbook advice to understand how a methodology that demands
extreme flexibility can work in an environment known for its
rigidity. Jack Ganssle has the deep experience to pose the kinds
of challenging questions all embedded folk want to ask, and
James Grenning and Russel Hill have been practicing embedded agile
programming long enough to give us answers grounded in experience,
that is, *embedded* experience!
