Meetup med Kent Beck

Oslo Lean Meetup og Oslo XP meetup er stolte over å kunne presenterer Kent Beck i den første felles meetupen i Oslo. Kent Beck trenger ingen introduksjon: Han blir ofte beskrevet som grunnleggeren av extreme programming og beskriver seg ydmykt som "gjenoppdageren" av test-drevet utvikling. Han er også hovedkraften bak JUnit. Kent er i landet for å holde et Agile Master kurs hos Iterate institute.

På Oslo Lean Meetup/Oslo XP meetup vil Kent snakke om hvordan å unngå sløsing i produksjonslinjen. Dette er et tema som spenner seg fra metodikk i form av Progressive Software Design til gjennomføringsverktøy som JUnit Max.

Møtet arrangeres som en felles meetup med Oslo Lean Meetup og Oslo XP Meetup. For å koordinere påmelding skjer dette på Oslo Lean Meetup sine sider.

    A bit slow to take off - otherwise a nice metaphor for the life of a startup.

    Great input on how to do agile projects in various business contexts!

    Synes har brukte mye tid på å forklare en veldig enkel modell. Hadde håpet på mer konkrete eksempler, men sånn er det vel når en har blitt stor guru :-)

    Interesting talk, but I got a bit suprised at first, because the subject of the talk was not as announced.

    The title was "The flight of the startup", where he used an airplane trying to get off the ground as a metaphor for startup companies. New ideas he have had lately trying to get JUnit Max off the ground. He connected the ideas to "lean startup".

    People who left half way through, at the beer pause, were probably disappointed, but in the last part of the talk he really managed to connect the lines to lean and XP practices and I got some important new and unexpected insights on when and how to use XP and when not to in a general project.

    Just hearing Kent Beck stating the following made the evening: "There is a time not to write programs. programs would slow you down while taxiing (on the runway). Paper prototypes are just fine."

    He cited Sketching User Experiences by Bill Buxton as an inspiration:

    Hearing Kent Beck's newly developed theme "Flight of the Startup" was an utter pleasure! Interesting Q&A session at the end as well.

    Surprising subject, but interesting :)

    I liked the subject very much! Was expecting something else but got something different and it was very good

    Content and presentation was great! Not a good idea to put the screen in front of an unblinded window.

    Great, interesting and thoughtprovoking presentation. He had some of really nice and unexpected surprises (especially coming from him!). It was very nice to hear his pragmatic approach and view to method - in context! I look forward to both hearing and reading much more about these talks as his startup goes along!

    He had some interesting new thoughts about when XP is and is not relevant. He also made me realize why and how you should minimize the use of mock objects in your test.

    Great presenter, great insights, as always!

    Took a bit long to get to the interesting part, but then presented very interesting thoughts

    I expected it to be more down and dirty, but it was definitely inspiring to listen to Kent share his thoughts and experiences. I especially enjoyed the q&a.

  • Janniche H.

    Etter pausen ble det virkelig interessant:)

    June 17, 2009

  • Arild S.

    Probably the best meetup I've been to. Very interesting about phases in business development crossreferenced with XP parctices.

    Finally someone down to earth.

    more like this, instead of the weak second rate norwegians at previous meeting!
    people wh have deep exciting real knowledge
    not who have a slide on lean or agile and lots of unintellible words of no merit, like the Dataforening Agile meeting did this evening!!!

    Hva med John Dee f.ex? De tar 400, og 170 + 138 på venteliste = 308 = pretty good. Ser ikke ut som det skjer noe der på 17. juni heller. Og vet ikke hvordan dere dekker leie av lokale, men tipper de fleste kan betale en slant for å høre Kent.

    Eller hva med dere andre på ventelista, som er bedre kjent i oslo enn meg? Kan dere hoste opp noen forslag?

    Vi har ikke funnet et større ledig lokale med sentral beliggenhet og servering

    Hva er sjansen for at dere kan flytte Kent'rn til et større lokale a? (Gitt at det as we speak er 99 på ventelista?)
