Agile2011 Day 2

A lot of today was spent in the Coaches' Corner, where several more convention-goers were served with expert advice.

I spent a chunk of my "alone time" today working on my "Agile Fundamental Apologetic" talk for Thursday (Fringe stage).  I hope to establish that if we weren't doing agile, we would have to do something very like it. I even got to pair on some of the slides, which was a great time.

Jeff was finalizing his Test Abstraction talk (based on our Agile In A Flash card), in which he showed some poorly-composed Fitnesse tests, and some much more well-composed, abstract versions of the same test. It was practical and useful. I think he opened testers' eyes to new possibilities, and that 7 minutes talk will have reverberations in many places.

After Jeff's talk was my own. Mine was titled "Will Pair Programming Ruin My Company?" in which I answered a few questions I've heard from managers over the years. Given how much controversy and resistance arise over this crucial practice, I think the talk was well-timed. It was also well-received. I had a great room, appreciative and inquisitive and thoughtful.

I also did a very small, personal session on my Agile Coaching Metaprocess.  Actually, it was a conversation with two people, one of which has heard it a million times already.  It wasn't a box office smash, but I've given the same talk with others through the week.

Quite a bit of time was spend in talks about consortiums, guilds, and interest groups. There are many great ideas bubbling under the surface of the Agile Alliance umbrella.  I spent the evening (late into the evening) having supper with an impressive group of agile luminaries. I know I was impressed.  We talked about providing programmers with an agile education.  Of course, as an Industrial Logic member this was of interest, but it has also been a long-term interest of mine as an agile coach. Thanks to Matt Barcomb for putting the evening together.

Some SEOs have no condition about victimization splog networks to ameliorate recent links. While, others tactile property it is a black-hat method and should be avoided. The SEOs exploitation splog networks would argue that since they square measure attractive a essay at deed caught, that they should gain the rewards of splog links. The SEOs anti it, would argue that it is dishonorable and creates an rough performing field. thoughtless of which part of the controversy you’re on, it’s undeniable that it complex eally have thing against SEO software, but I like to hold property grassroots and simple. I have to terminus ad quem my software system practice to just a few. Why? Because I accept that a parcel of the software out there ar a human action of time. I could be exploitation that time to act newfangled content, see novel clients, or move modern projects. Furthermore, I’m thrifty. ground use up wealth on a code when I can but use a free-soil process like Google Keyword slave or the tools provided by sites like this provide and computing machine again.
