NewAgile2008Image.jpgToday and tomorrow I will be both speaking at and attending the 2008 Agile Development Practices Conference in Orlando, Florida. I’ll be blogging live from the event and will provide summaries of the keynotes and the sessions I attend. If you’re attending the ADP Conference, come by and check out the Agile Contracting session that Rachel Weston and I will be giving today at 12:45 pm. There are so many great sessions at this year’s event, I wish they’d spread it out over 3 or 4 days. But, here are some the sessions that look like they’ll be worth checking out:
