Last thursday, on June 10th, I gave a talk about agile methods at the meeting of the Java User Group Erlangen-Nürnberg together with Oliver Szymanski. You can download the slides here (the slides are in German).

We played the “60 Paces”-game with our audience, which was pretty cool. I never did this before, and the results were amazing - at least IMHO. After that we talked about some general problems in software development, and how “agile” tries to solve them. This was neither an overview nor a details-talk, but it included elements of both types. It also was by no means complete.

Anyway, I think (or should I say “hope”? ;) ) the audience liked it. There were a lot of questions at the end, and I think this is a positive sign. At least we gave them enough information to ask questions ;)
