On the 28th and 29th of November, XP Day 2005 will be held in London. Organised by the local Extreme Tuesday Club, XP Day (tag line: “More than XP, more than one day”) will be hosting multiple tracks for beginners, journeymen and experts alike. I really encourage any of you interested in agile development to come along – it’s surprisingly good value.
This year, I’m happy to be presenting the Lego XP game which I developed as a teaching aid for our company. Unlike the more traditional XP game (which introduces some of the central tenants of XP and agile development with the help of balloons, playing cards and dice) the lego version makes a clearer link with the development of software, introducing such concepts has regression bugs, refactoring and technical debt. Expect a fuller writeup after the event.
