imageFor anyone in the Houston area this Friday, our founder – Caleb Jenkins – will be speaking at the Agile DOTNET Conference hosted by Improving Enterprises and Microsoft. We’re really excited for this year’s conference – it seems that our friends over at Improving like to take it up a notch each year. Last year the Houston event was at the Microsoft office.. this year, it’s at a Major League Baseball Park with an after party watching the Astros play the Dodgers!

Caleb will be pulling from his experiences working with global agile teams to talk about 3 patterns that we’ve used to scale scrum. This talk is a lot of fun, and we’re hoping everyone will have something that they can take away from it.

If you’re planning on attending.. be sure to swing by and say hi!

Workshop Agile + UX

Big Design Week starts Monday, and we’re thrilled to announce that our own Caleb Jenkins has been asked to help present on Wednesday’s workshop! He’ll be digging in to the dicey topic of UX and Agile with Brian Sullivan and Jim Carlsen-Landy. We’re looking forward to hearing how these three present together. They all come at Agile and UX teams from slightly different angles. Jim has managed UX teams for a couple of years at a company that was an early adopter of agile practices, and Brian will be walking through hands on techniques to get scrappy with your UX research, design and deliverables.

Caleb will be focusing in on some of the misconceptions that exists between the agile and UX worlds and specifically how teams can scale Scrum with UX teams. It’s going to be awesome! Check out the full week’s schedule, and if you haven’t done so yet, there is still time to register.

See you there!

We’re excited that Caleb will be speaking in Tulsa tomorrow at the Tulsa School of Dev.

He already blogged about it; he’ll be speaking on “10 Reasons Your Software Sucks” and then round things out with with “Taming the Legacy Code Beast”. These are both information packed talks with real word strategies to learn from.

Be sure to register now and then check out the other sessions. It’s going to be a full day! Make sure you stop by and say hi!

As Caleb pointed out, this year our friend Jay Smith has taken on the goal of spear heading a Community Leadership Town hall at the Tulsa Tech Fest.

What is a Community Leadership Town Hall? Jay’s post summarizes it well

The evening will be filled with discussions about issues, ideas, and solutions regarding creating, maintaining, and growing user groups and technical communities.   This will be a highly interactive night where everyone will have a chance to suggest a topic and voice their opinion.

Bring your questions, ideas, issues, and willingness to share to the Community Leadership Town Hall – Tulsa.

We know that it’s no small task to pull so many different leaders together, provide content for everyone and keep all of the participants engaged. We’re looking forward to attending and participating! Hope to see you there.

Dallas TechFest 2010

This Friday, July 30th, 2010 – our founder and principal mentor, Caleb Jenkins, will be speaking at the Dallas Tech Fest, and today is the last day to pre-register! Tech Fest’s are unique from other .NET Code Camp style events in that they pull some of the best speakers from a cross section of technologies. This is a great place to come mix it up and see what’s happening on the “other side of the fence”. This year the Dallas Tech Fest will have featured tracks for .NET, JAVA, PHP, Adobe Flex, ColdFusion, IT Pro and other Mixed Sessions.

This year, my friend and organizer Tim Rayburn has pulled together some elite speakers from across the country like Craig Walls (Spring in Action), Ted Neward (as in – The Ted Neward), Mark Piller (famous for his cross platform Adobe/.NET/Java applications), Matt Woodward (IT Specialist for the US Senate) and many many more.

I’m looking forward to this talk.. I’ll be covering the 10 Practices that All Developers Should Start Right Now! (based on this 10 Practices for Developers blog series)

I recently took on a new client in the travel industry, even though they are based in Dallas – I am working with their .NET development team in New York. As a part of that I am making my first trek to the big apple. I’m really looking forward to this trip to get to know the dev team that I’ve been working with remotely up until now. I’m also taking advantage of this trip visit the NYC .NET Meetup group and to speak at the local INETA .NET Developers Group.

If you’re going to be in the New York City area this week, be sure to ping me – I’d love to meet up with you at one of these events!
