Joel and I did our “Agile
Buffet Table” session at GIDS in
We talked about XP, Scrum, and Kanban and how you can build your own methodology by
mixing and matching the features from each of these agile brands. We had *great* audience

Excel and designing a unique process with the audience. Our exit was also very funny,
there was no break between sessions(!), so the next speakers came in and were ready
to start when we ended. So I impersonated the next speaker, very agile.
The slides are available here (via
slideshare.) In addition we talked about a lot and have recommended the following
