On June 26-28, 2008, I'll be speaking at the inagural Agile IT! Experience symposium in Reston, VA. Agile ITX is about consistently delivering better software. It's for development teams and management, working and learning together.
It's a production of the No Fluff, Just Stuff symposium series. Like all NFJS events, attendance is capped, so be sure to register early.
From the announcement email:
The central theme of the Agile ITX conference (www.agileitx.com) is to help your development team/management consistently deliver better software. We'll focus on the entire software development life cycle, from requirements management to test automation to software process. You'll learn how to Develop in Iterations, Collborate with Customers, and Respond to Change. Software is a difficult field with high rates of failure. Our world-class speakers will help you implement best practices, deal with persistent problems, and recognize opportunities to improve your existing practices.
