Agile Development Practices
Develop | Posted September 08, 2009

The Agile Development Practices conference is November 9-13 in Orlando, FL. I've never attended before, but I've read good things about it on Chris Spagnuolo's EdgeHopper.

This year's conference has some big-name speakers, including a keynote by Alistair Cockburn, one of the original signers of the Agile Manifesto.  Among the lesser-known speakers, you'll see my name listed.

My talk is Peer Code Review: An Agile Process.  My goal will be simple: to convince the attendees that code review is a natural part of agile development practices.  Many developers have had bad experiences with peer code review: too many meetings, too many edicts from above, too much flaming, etc.  As a result, they have trouble believing that code review could ever be part of the developer's (alleged) paradise known as agile methods.

It should be fun - I will have 90 minutes to show how code review aligns with the Agile Manifesto and some of the principles of agile.  I'll also talk about styles of code review, tips/tricks, social effects, and more.

If you are interested in attending, now is the time to sign up.  The early bird discount ends on September 18. There is also a drawing for a free conference pass.  Full details on both offers are on the Ways to Save page.

One last note: use the discount code SPAD and receive an extra $300 off the price!
