Presentation: "Amplifying the Agile Principles"
Monday 16:15 - 17:00, Private Room
Agile development is often considered to work for small teams only.
However, there are more than enough projects that are large in some
sense and it is not always possible to limit the number
of developers to a small team size.
So the question arises, how to preserve the values of
agile principles in the context of large projects.
In this talk we examine the agile principles according to their
effects on large projects. For example, we discuss what
a principle such as "self-organizing teams" means
when it is applied to a team of more than 100 developers.
The examination is based on our own
experience applying agile principles to large teams
up to 200 members.

Tutorial: "EJB role play"
Thursday 09:00 - 12:00
The EJB roleplay is an unusual way to understand the lifecycle of
EJBs. By interacting with others you "experience" and "feel" the way
things are organized.
It's also an interesting way to teach and learn complex behavior of
The format will be lectures with slides and active role-playing. See
for an impression of the playing.
Attendees may have any range of knowledge about EJB concepts. That is
they could be novices as well as experts. The goal is to bring these
people together to get a shared understanding. Anyway, some basic
programming knowledge should of course exist.
Tutorial: "The Extreme Hour"
Thursday 13:00 - 16:00
The Extreme Hour is "the smallest project in the world", which lasts an
extended hour, where people experience most of the aspects of extreme
Each particpant occupies one of the typical project team roles, like QA,
customer, developer, tracker, or coach.
XP practices, like the development of user stories, the planning game,
as well as aggreeing on a commitment schedule are directly practised during
the session. The development happens of course in pairs, by creating the
simplest design possible. A later refactoring is necessary, if this isn't
possible at the time of creation.
The extreme hour requires no actual programming, but still a lot of fun!
