The Agile Australia conference is on today and tomorrow. I particularly like going to see presentations from people who haven't done one before. It's a good way to get some fresh ideas. Plus it's a chance to practice my networking skills as I'm not as extrovert as some of the programming teams I work with like to think. What's your preferences or tips when attending a conference? What do you look forward to? How do you gather information so it can be parsed days later?

What role are your tests serving and how can they evolve over time long after they are originally written?
Most test these days are great bits of specification. But are not great for regression. But don't worry because they can evolve along with your product.

People don't want their core beliefs challenged. If they are presented with something new and can find a way to make it fit with what they already know then they can easily ignore what is "new". For me it started about challenging what people saw as "common sense". Is this something you've faced? How do you push past it to get people really thinking about a concept beyond how it fits with their existing world view?
When I started learning Agile techniques it challenged a lot of my assumptions about how to develop software. But sometimes people find a way to fit it into their existing beliefs or "common sense" and don't really challenge themselves. This is my way of trying to push them out of that comfort zone.

I like to learn something new each day. I wasn't expecting to learn this
