When reading other people’s blogs I usually skip over the posts where they announce where they’re speaking next, or where they’re traveling to, or what they’re having for lunch, blah, blah, blah.  But now I’m going to join the dark side and do it too!

Tomorrow, 5/13/10, I’m doing a talk titled “Introduction to Agile Philosophy and Techniques” at the South Sound .Net User’s Group in Olympia, Washington.  We’re going to talk about the alphabet soup of ideas that make agile development work; DRY, YAGNI, SRP, OCP, DIP, LoD and all the rest.  If you’re in the area, feel free to join us.  If you want to do “agile development” but don’t quite understand what that means, this talk should give you a pretty good overview of the fundamentals and give you hooks for further exploration.  If you already understand what all those acronyms stand for and what they mean, then come add your voice to the conversation!  Time and place can be found on the web site.
