I Rock, I Suck, I am - Jumpstart Your Journey to Agile
Location: Ballroom A Audience level:
So you’ve read Kent Beck’s white book and heard him speak at RailsConf 2008. Agile yet?
Why not? Being Agile is not a destination or a happening. It’s a journey.
It took me 6 years, 4 companies, 6 jobs and 11-ish projects to make that journey. Now I feel confident enough to say that every day I am an Agile Engineer. Along the way I’ve spotted some patterns in philosophy, environment and tactics that can help jump-start a willing programmer down this path.
Like any journey, having an experienced guide is a good idea. Come listen to what one engineer has learned to see if it helps you.

He misses Grunge, loves great barbecue, and expects live fish to stay in water at all times.
