I just returned from AgileOpen France, an Open Space Technology conference organized by Bernard Notarianni, RaphaÃ«l Pierquin and Emmanuel Gaillot, in the footsteps of AgileOpen Europe. All in all, it has been a good conference.
The AgileOpen France conference is opening this Wednesday for 3 days, and I am going with my colleagues Etienne and Yannick.
I have long wanted to attend a BarCamp but it’s not easy to get yourself to attend a conference on a Saturday after a whole week of work. I was also turned off by an impression that the crowd was … Continue reading
I have participated at a few Open Space events, and facilitated some, but the crowd never exceeded 60. So I was a bit apprehensive, when it appeared that the Open Space Technology part at Valtech Days Paris 2007 would gather … Continue reading
I first got introduced to using hexagonal cards for facilitation at AgileOpen. I thought they were pretty neat, and I acquired two packs of them for use at the Valtech Days. Here are some notes on how to use them.
Wow. I started writing this post on my way back from the Valtech Days conference, which I have contributed to organize, and all I can say is “wow”.
The folks at developpez.com (the de facto leading French website for developers) have interviewed me about the Open Space Technology conference that we are having at the Valtech Days on Wednesday.

This year, I am going to attend the conference on Continuous Integration and Testing, in Brussels on October 19-20. The last edition I’ve been to, in London last year, was enormous fun, so I cannot wait to get there. Join … Continue reading
David Gageot has posted a round-up (in French) of the OST conference that I facilitated at Valtech recently, with pictures. My post on the subject is here.
To my question “how can we demonstrate the validity of Agile using figures” the disappointing conclusion was that it was not actually possible (thank you Jamie and your “when you know, you know” ;-) ). For more on this, I’d … Continue reading
After a session on Agile Tooling, I suggested a demo of Hudson. I thought that went rather well. For me, Hudson is definitely the best CI tool today. It is still a bit young but it is so easy to … Continue reading
There were 4 French people at AgileOpen, so inevitably the subject of holding the equivalent of AgileOpen in France came up. It appeared that the people at Octo are using OpenSpace internally. They are also starting to apply it with … Continue reading
