Attend the keynote at 9AM Friday to get your weekend off on the right foot.
Say “Hi” if you see me at other sessions, such as @sfradkin “Live Coding Music: A Creativity Break for Your Programming Soul”
or @JamesBender “How I Learned to Love Dependency Injection”.

Mark A. Wilson @DeveloperInfra will bring you up-to-date on “Authentication Using OpenID Connect and OAuth 2.0”

That’s Agile

True story

Posted to my original site circa May 2014

This week in a business requirements session, a product owner sighed, “If only we could break it down and see one piece working before we start on the next piece. Could we do that?”

“That’s Agile!” I said, he looked at the business analyst as if to say “is she having a laugh?”, but she confirmed that it is a valid methodology, and she had worked with programmers applying it on other projects.  The timing was perfect because, yes, I would love to do that, and I was even registered for the TriAgile conference two days later.
