I tend to go to one big agile conference a year (doing a PhD helps to add motivation). This year it is XP2009 - the premier European conference on all things agile. Usually I publish some reports either after or even before the conference. This year I got lazy extremely busy having a PhD symposium, a paper and a workshop to run and instead of a creative reporting I just let you see the photos to get a feeling of what the conference atmosphere was like.

If you wonder about the place, everything happens on a very lovely place on the Italian island Sardinia.

Unfortunately I am still bad with remembering people I don’t know very well, so if you recognize an unnamed person, tell his name in the comment and I’ll update the post. This post will be updated if I add more photos later.

First several random pictures of the people talking.

The guy on the right is Hubert, one of two official photographers on the conference. Ask him for the better photos. The other official photographer is Tom Poppendieck, but somehow I didn’t take a photo of him yet.

That’s what the hotel territory looks like

I think white is one of the two the favorite colors of Joshua Kerievsky. At least he always wears either white or black, when I meet him.IMG_0020[1]

The guy in the middle is Patrick Kua who writes a very useful blog on agile coaching

Couple of finns (Kati and Mikko) and, well, couple of non-finns. The amount of of conversations in Finnish on this conference skyrocketed comparing to, say, XP2007. I wonder whether it’s a sign that Finland wasn’t hit by the recession as much as the other countries.

There are quite many “just tourists” in the hotel.

PhD symposium dinner. It was the first time I ever tried a dinner with seven or maybe even eight meals. Too bad they were also very tasty – will definitely have to spend some quality time in the gym.
