XP2015: Day 4 Summary

As usual we started with the keynote, in this occasion by Brian Fitzgerald (Irish Software Engineering Research Centre). He talked about New directions for Software Development Process. He started with a summary of the evolution of software development process and after that he focused on the impact of Open Source movement and Crowd funding initiatives.

After the keynote I attended to the Lightning talks session where I found some interesting presentations performed by Brazilian folks (Paulo Caroli and Rafaela Fontana).

In the afternoon I attended to the testing track where I saw the most interesting sessions of the day: Llewellyn Falco talking about Getting Existing Code under Tests and Charlie Poole’ demo: From Test to Theories and back  again. Excellent speakers and very useful information.

The last session I attended was Pragmatic Architecture for Agile Teams by Janne Sinivirta, it was fine, nothing new for me but it was a useful summary of key points.

Finally at 5 PM it was the main conference closing (even when the next day there were some more workshops). As usual the closing included a retrospective activity, thanks to everyone and the announcement of the next year conference which will be held in Edinburgh.
