InfoQ Site “Unlaunched”

Okay, so yet more announcements… a new site called InfoQ has been un-launched. They cover Java, .NET, Ruby, SOA, and Agile topics. This site is important for me because… I’ve got an article published on it. The article is “What is Agility and Why Should You Care?“.

Dearth of Entries

Due to personal reasons, I have lately been unable to keep up with Agile Advice. I’m looking forward to re-starting in a few days. Some things to look forward to include publication of a Cheat Sheet for process facilitators, and some announcements about two new sites with lots of great agile-related content. I’m also queuing up some interviews that I hope will be interesting to readers.

A new Agile-Scrum-Lean Product Management Course

Agile Work Seminar and Intensive Agile Work For Teams

Berteig Consulting Inc. has announced an updated public course schedule which includes a one-day introduction to Agile Work, and a four-day intensive course for teams. Both of these courses have been offered previously in a private setting and they have received loads of positive feedback (and suggestions for improvement which have been incorporated into these public versions). And yes… this is blatant self-promotion!

Minor Site Updates

I have updated the category names to be a bit more descriptive and to allow for entry headers to be styled by category. This announcement is an example of that! I have also added an indicator for the number of entries under each category on the category listing on the right side of this page. Hope these minor updates make the site just a wee bit easier to use!
