    Thank InfoQ for publishing presentations like this! I think that agile community (apart from some stupid discussions about "being agile") is setting the basics of the future REAL computer science. Maybe it will be compound by a mixture of mathematics, sociology and programmers' psychology ;-)


    But please, please, please, tell the guy that is recording those kind of presentations to FOCUS in WHAT they show in THEIR SCREEN. Keith Braithwaite is a clever programmer, but I prefer to see what is showing than how is looking he while showing it ;-).

    And, another one, is it possible to record the questions and comments from attendants? I suspect that some of them are very interesting but I can't hear anything.

    Thank you InfoQ

    No, I take that back. You can't see the code examples. Sorry.

    Yes, I also love to see the code ;-)

    Congrats for your presentation, I found it very interesting. I think that Kent Beck made some comments about the same here at the end.

    Only to play devil's advocate, maybe we need some double-blind trial to assure that we aren't selecting the projects we think present some slope, don't we? Maybe you have said something about it in the presentation, but I'm a spanish guy that sometimes don't understand well english speakers.


    Thanks!

    Thanks Keith for your presentation.

    I did the math on two defence projects here at Systematic A/S to confirm your experiment:

    Codebase Slope Automated unit tests?
    Project 1 2,4 Yes
    Project 2 2,9 Yes
