The journey started with a very interesting keynote by Elizabeth Hendrickson who shared how they at doing XP at scale in Pivotal Labs.
After that I went to the session Symbiotic Design Practices by Michael Feathers.
In the afternoon I attended the session Example Mapping by the Cucumber guys. The session was very interactive and I really liked the approach proposed by Matt and Steve (the guys in charge of the session). I will share my info about this session in a future post.
My next session was a Panel where some “agile rock starts” discussed about the Agile Hype. The session was fine but at a certain point I felt it was not adding value to me, so I left the room and went into the hall to do some networking.
At 6 PM I joined the Open Space Marketplace where I proposed a Smalltalk Introductory session for that same day.
At the 7 PM there was a nice Whisky Tasting activity and right after that I went back to the open space to join a session about Mutation testing. Next to it, was my Smalltalk session. Seven guys joined the session and we did a walkthrough over Pharo Smalltalk that took about one hour. By the end of the session it was almost 10 and I went to my room to review some stuff for the workshop I had to run the next day.
