Meet Peter, Programmer

“I’d like to get a better handle on test driven development and refactoring.”

Peter’s company has just started using agile development. While he’s been a developer for a long time, he’s not used agile practices like TDD. Peter is coming to the conference to learn, a bit like an intense training session. He wants to learn the basics and to see how other developers practice their craft.

The many hands-on sessions are high priority to Peter (Ruby Kata and Sparring by Micah Martin, Coding Dojo: Enhancing Legacy Code by Guillaume Tardif, Eric Lefevre-Ardant, Clean Code Clinic: Refactoring Fest with Naresh Jain, Ugly Code vs Clean Code: A/B Comparison of Legacy/Test-Driven Implementations by Patrick Wilson-Welsh, Corey Haines, TDD Clinic: C++ with James Grenning and Bas Vodde, Growing Object-Oriented Software, Guided by Tests by Steve Freeman). He is also very interested in this thing called Continuous Integration and plans to get a headstart from Continuous Integration: Your New Best Friend by Howard Deiner, and then from Build Engineer Bootcamp: Builds As Code by Paul Julius and Jeffrey Fredrick. He will also try to watch Programming with the Stars and maybe even peek at the coding in progress at Live Aid.

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