Jan 23rd Waltham - Agile Boston Monthly Meeting
The Relationship Between Software Hacking, the Agile Movement, the Emerging World of Culture Design

Eric Raymond, Author of "The Cathedral and the Bazaar"

Eric was an invitee to the 2001 meeting in Snowbird, Utah where the Agile Manifesto was conceived and ratified. Interestingly enough, he declined the invitation due to previous commitments. At tonight's session, Eric will discuss the relationship between software hacking, the Agile movement, the emerging world of culture design. He'll also reveal specific tips and tricks for getting what you want from authority figures in your own company to keep agile alive and growing inside the culture of your own organization.

At this session you will learn:

- Specific methods for convincing management to make large investments in TDD and Continuous Integration
- What language NOT to use when discussing investing in Agile in your company
- How to champion agile in your company by having OTHER PEOPLE WITH MORE AUTHORITY do it for you
- Lessons from hacking the culture of the Open Source movement
- Why Agile is actually part of a wider discipline of Culture Design and what it means to you at work
