Agile Australia 2012

I had a surprisingly good time at Agile Australia last Thursday, well done to the programme committee.  I was only there for part of the day on the second day, but the quality of the talks I attended were much higher than previous years.

The standout talk was of course James Ross with his interesting, educational and laugh-out-loud funny talk "Why nothing you ever do might make the slightest difference: A crash course in the Theory of Constraints"

Also fantastic to see was Nicholas Thorpe and Fiona Siseman's "Agile Board Hacks" a tour de force of real word agile boards based on their excellent blog here: http://agileboardhacks.com/

Another talk I really enjoyed was Design Eye for the Dev Guy by Julian Boot with a bunch of tips around basic design principles such as proximity, enclosure, continuity and connection.   

Finally I'm hanging out to see a health dashboard tool based on James Brett and Marina Chiovetti's wonderful talk "Continuous Risk Management".

I hope the slides for the above talks will be available, I'll link to them here when I find them.
