Preparing for XP Day 2006

It's that time of year when a few foolish souls gather in a pub in London every Tuesday evening and start planning what will eventually become XP Day 2006. Yet again I've got myself roped into it. Will I never learn?

This year the Programme Chairs have chosen to have a stream for experience reports, both of successes and failures. Have you had difficulty implementing XP, Scrum or some other method? What did you find difficult and what did you do about it? If you have a story to tell, we want to hear about it.

We're also planning on having poster presentations during coffee and lunch. Anyone who is attending the XP Day conference can have a poster displayed to publicise an interesting idea or technique, ask an awkward question, solicit information or... well anything really.

The Call for Proposals has been announced and the submissions system has been streamlined so it's easier than to log onto the wiki and submit a session idea. Like last year, we're using an open peer review process: if you submit a session or poster you also vote on and review other submissions during the review period.

And finally the website has had a makeover. You can subscribe to a news feed in Atom format and download conference dates in iCalendar. It's all very Web 2.0.
