Top tip: if you present 3 person report without the other two people, rewrite slides so you know what it's really on about.
I'd never been to an XP Day before; I was very pleasantly surprised by the lovely people and the great sessions. Highlights for me were:
- Catching up with former colleagues, people from CITCON, and other conferences
- Being prepared to argue about Non Functional Requirements in Sally Ann Freudenberg's fishbowl, and having Nat Pryce and Keith Braithwaite argue most of what I wanted to say anyway.
- Duncan Pierce and Rachel Davies' standing-room-only session 'Cognitive Bias in Decision-making'
- The final session for the second day of the developer track was Steve Freeman's panel: 'Have we lost our Mojo?'. It was great to see so many notable people debating the state of the Agile community.
I think the Mojo is behind the cushions on the sofa, anyhow.
