Let's go Agile2009!

In this summer, 14 Japanese attendees went to Agile2008 from Japan.
Although some people don't speak English well, we attend the conference,
and we brought many important things to Japan.

We had a meeting to go to Agile2009 from Japan yesterday.
Ten people, included four new comers, gathered at the meeting.
I'd like many japanese to go to Agile2009 and have a session.

By the way, there're several great agilists in Japan .
Seki-san, one of tem, and his team have experienced XP for seven years.
They have been releasing a high quality software iteratively.
One of the keys of their success is continuous testing included automated test
and manual test. His presentation is very popular among japanese agilists.

I want him to make a presentation at Agile Conference someday.

Lego powered practice was introduced on InfoQ

Last day, Bug-Lego which a practice of representing software bug with LEGO Bricks was introduced on InfoQ.

In the article, the other practice of using lego, "LEGO Powered Time-Tracking", was introduced too. It's very interesting!!

If I use it, I create meaning on each color, and use them on weekly retrospective meeting.

I'll introduce the practice to my team.
