London XPDay 2009

The London XPDay is one of the oldest, and, in my very biased opinion, one of the very best international conferences on agile software development.

This year’s programme includes some great sessions. However, I think some very interesting ones will materialise in the open-space sessions (which make bulk of the programme) for which all the delegates will be able to propose the topics that interest them most and, if there is enough interest from other attendees, lead a session.

All the previous editions have been very successful, and most people always left with some new insights.

There are still some places available. Hurry up and book yours here—it is exceptionally good value for money.
