The first week of March will be a mix of old and new for me. I’ll be speaking at a new conference, ESDC, the Enterprise Software Development Conference. This conference isn’t just new for me, it is new period, taking over the traditional calendar-slot of the defunct SD West. If you’re interested in attending you can use my last name as a discount code when you register to get $100 of the full conference pass. You can also register to attend the expo for free as long as you register by February 28th.
I’ll be giving two talks at ESDC, both on Wednesday March 3rd. I start the day bright and early with #605 Going Lean: Slash Waste with Build & Deployment Automation at 8:15 am, and finish the day at 4 pm with #906 Creating Habitable Code: Lessons in Longevity from CruiseControl. Lean software development has been a hot topic for me lately, as members of BayXP and the Silicon Valley Agile Meetup should know, while practices for creating long-term sustainable code has been a long term sustained interest. I’ve delivered the Habitable Code talk before but this’ll be the first time doing it solo, without Paul Julius by my side.
