This week I attended the annual Intel Agile and Lean Development Conference. This is the third time I have attended,1 and IMHO, it was the best by far. The conference was better arranged, having a basic day, an advanced day, and a day of keynotes with industry experts. For the first time, Intel invited members of the community.
Throughout the conference I took a bunch of notes. These are some of the resources mentioned in the classes and keynotes I attended.
It’s Friday the 13th — what better way to spend it then attending AgilePalooza? I added to my reading list today.
Michael Tardiff of SolutionsIQ gave me his business card with Pair Programming Illuminated by Laurie Williams and Robert Kessler written on the back. Oh, and a comment like, “Very illuminating.” One more book for my to-read list.

Function-oriented and object-oriented modular design techniques, designing for re-use and maintainability. Specification and documentation. Verification and validation.
