Emmanuel Gaillot just blogged about our upcoming French Refactoring Training.
January 28 and 29 at the office of Octo Technology in Paris. This training will be in French. We ran it together in-house (also in Paris) and it worked quite well . The training was good fun, we did even more things dojo-style (including demos) than I normally would, and we made time for hands-on systems thinking. I think with the experiments we’ve done this year, that we’ve finally found a good way to do systems thinking with programmers. It seems to be a bit more intuitive for managers and coaches, but presented in the right way, it turns out developers find it eXtremely valuable. Surprisingly (not ) the topic the developers chose for their diagram was not entirely technical: how too much labour turnover was hindering their productivity and maintenance.
In other other news: the QWAN newsletter is out. It has some instruction on how to do your own temperature reading, conference reports and the public courses agenda. Enjoy!
Now it is time to relax after a busy and period. Maybe I’ll finally get around to posting photos from all the conferences we’ve been to since october…
