TDD Panel and Mary Poppendieck at the Austin InnoTech Conference

The InnoTech conference is coming to Austin on Wednesday, November 16th.  The highlight for me is seeing the keynote address from Mary Poppendieck on Lean Software Development.  Earlier in my career I built supply chain and manufacturing software for a company that is very successful with “Just In Time” manufacturing.  My old business partners were some of the sharpest people I’ve ever had the privilege to work with.  It’s cool to hear the comparison of the very successful Toyota manufacturing models to Agile software development today.

After the keynote I’m part of a panel on Test Driven Development with Scott Bellware, Bret Pettichord, and Jeff Smith.  And yes, when Scott Bellware asked me about doing the panel with him my first reaction was “isn’t that the company from Office Space?”

    Ha, I had the same reaction. I started giggling to myself when Scott handed my a flyer for the conference.
