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
In the evening, there was a session called ‘games’. That was interesting (and fun). A number of games were named.
