Reading these made we want to write my own answers (technically I had to since I’ll be speaking at the conference as well) and as a reader of this blog you get to read them before everybody else.
Why should people come to the conference?
It is a great opportunity to meet other professionals who are passionate about being agile and want to learn more. In the past I had interesting conversations with conference attendees and learnt quite a lot.
Why should people come to my session?
To learn about TDD 🙂
If you want to add another great design methodology to your tool belt – this is the session you need to hear.
It doesn’t matter if you tried TDD in the past or just beginning with unit testing.
Why did I choose the topic?
There have been quite a lot of misunderstanding in this field and although it seems as if TDD exist since the beginning of time it is still misunderstood and misused.
I hate to see software developers avoid this practice due to bad experience and lack of understanding of how it works and so I’ve decided to create a session that shows TDD with a “real” application – not just a trivial example.
Why I think you should go to “Agile from the executive floor – defining agility in business terms” by Yuval Yeret?
I’ve been a software developer for a long time. Having to explain to “top brass” how a proposed change would benefit the organization become part of my job and so I want to hear Yuval’s experience and incites on the topic.
Why did the chicken cross the road?
There is no chicken…
