The Agile 2009 program is ready, and it’s chock full of practical content. I know training and travel budgets have been cut, but this program is worth the investment. Of course, the best thing about any conference is the informal networking and learning from other participants. This year’s presenters include not only a lot of “big names”, but lots of in-the-trenches practitioners dealing with the same issues as your team.
I’m particularly excited about our testing stage program. Our track is in a large room, so we have included sessions that are highly interactive, and useful for a wide variety of participants. We have a great range of topics and session types. There are also lots of sessions in the Developer Jam and Tools for Agility stages that will be highly interesting for anyone involved in testing.
