Meet Rose, Researcher

“I need to hear about practitioner experience with agile to inform my research plans, and I want to get comments on my own research from both practitioners and other researchers.”

Rose is doing research in computer science at her university. Agile development attracted her as a topic because it combined insight about communication and collaboration with practical understanding about creating effective software. She hopes that her research will help practitioners, and also attract interest in the computer science research community. She is an agile enthusiast and teaches about agile in courses, but she looks always for evidence and is interested in exploring areas where agile ideas need further work.

Rose is thrilled that an entire track is dedicated to researchers at Agile 2009 and that there is a special rate for academics. Rose is planning to attend What (Else) Agile Can Learn from Complexity, a session by Jurgen Appelo and 5 Users Every Friday: A Case Study in Applied Research, with Tom Illmensee and Alyson Muff. In practice, most of her time will be spent in the Research-in-progress workshop and the PhD Symposium.

Does this story sound familiar to you? Rose is a persona, a fictional character used to focus parts of the conference. Come and meet like-minded participants at Agile 2009 Conference.
