XP Day CH 2010… on the starting block

[version française]

Hi everyone …
The year has just begun, and yesterday evening [wednesday, the 20th] we met with the XP Day CH team to go on with the preparation of the 2010 edition … “Foie Gras” and Champagne at the menu, hum I meant selection of proposals and planning definition…
Negotiations were hard… but the famous Dr Didier himself ;) managed to calm down everyone.
A draft version of the schedule was established, but I let our beloved President announce it.
All I can say is that english presentations make a remarkable appearance.

Discussions went on about the goodies choice…
We think that the bags of last year edition will be available again (as we know from reliable source that they can help with a car stuck in the snow…)
On the other hand, our fashion consultant Portia told us how difficult it was to enter clubs in London with such a bag… Dilemma.

Anyway, we must hurry up now.
Next steps : a provisional schedule will be published and registration will be open… Stay tuned !

Don’t forget : xpday.ch !

Lean presentation at Agile Tour Geneva 2009

Antoine adds that the basics are obvious to most of us, but that we very rarely put these into practice.
Wow, I shouldn’t expect enlightment in a one hour presentation.
But as you’ll see, this presentation really convinced me of studying Lean….
