Attending, Innotech, a local Austin conference – level 000

This Wednesday, I attended the Innotech conference (no relation to Office Space), where I attended a session given by Mary Poppendieck, the author of Lean Software Development.  She elaborated on some principal of making software development more lean.  It starts with eliminating waste.  At lunch, we convinced her to come out to a local burger place and had a great time discussing software and Agile over burgers.  Coincidentally, every attendee is a member of the AgileATX practitioners group.  Pictured, you’ll see Jeffrey Palermo (me), Blake Caraway, Steve Donie, Scott Bellware, Bret Pettichord, Phred Menyhert, Jeremy Miller, and Mary Poppendieck.
