XP Day 2008

Registration has recently opened for XP Day 2008.

This year XpDay is returning to its roots, focusing on "by practitioners, for practitioners" and acting as a forum in which practitioners can collectively advance the state of the art in "agile" software project management. There are now just two tracks of presented sessions, mostly tutorials and experience reports. The rest will be an Open Space where attendees can discover more about the topics that interest them most. Each day, will start with a Lightning Talks session where delegates can raise topics for the Open Space, or just make a point. And, of course, each day will end with the now legendary evening social events.

I'm going to be presenting an experience report on TDD and Asynchrony. I'll share my experience of testing concurrent and event-driven systems, including message-based services, rich clients and AJAX web applications. I'll sum up that experience with some general patterns that can be used when tests runs asynchronously with the system under test.

I've learned more useful stuff at XP Day than any other conference. I expect that to continue thanks to the new conference format, with its focus on people sharing what they've learned and generating new ideas.

XP Day has sold out every year. So, you'd better register for a place soon if you want to go.

Update: XP Day has now sold out, but you can join the waiting list in case places become available.
