Agile and Lean Development Conference Resources 2014

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.

I record them here so I can find them later. Maybe they’ll be useful for you, too. Read more →

AgilePalooza Reading List

It’s Friday the 13th — what better way to spend it then attending AgilePalooza? I added to my reading list today.

ISBN is 0201745763 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.
ISBN is 0307887898 I learned about The Lean Startup: How Today’s Entrepreneurs Use Continuous Innovation to Create Radically Successful Businesses by Eric Ries at Intel’s 2012 Agile Conference. It was recommended again in an open space session at AgilePalooza.

I added these books to my interesting books page. Do you have a favorite Agile book to recommend to me?
