XP Day London 08 was last week. The slides and spreadsheet from my Kanban, Flow and Cadence are now available on the download page.
All in all, the conference was a good one. Open Space went really well. Too many interesting options to choose from, which is usually a good sign. I ran a session on the Evolution of the Agile Model which was an interesting and lively discussion. No concrete conclusions, but I’ll upload photos of the notes to the conference wiki.
It was also great to have Daniel Jones and Marc Baker giving a keynote on Lean Thinking. While they haven’t worked in software development before, their general insights were useful and entertaining, with some horror stories from the NHS! They also seemed genuinely interested in getting more involved in helping learn how to apply Lean to software development.
