If you have not heard Pollyanna Pixton you are in for a treat. Not only does she have the best Cold War Super Hero name of all the agilists she is a great speaker. Enjoy this presentation that she gave to the Washington DC APLN chapter last year.
This has been sitting on my hard drive for a long time and it needed to get out. Please do not be confused about the her reference to the Agile Conference it is a reference to last years conference. The Leadership Summit did sell out and you can hear some of the sessions that I recorded and released last year.
I hope to get 2006 fully published by the time the Agile2007 conference comes around.

I talked with Bruce Williams about the Ruby community near the Boulder, living in snow, the RailsEdge, Rails Plugins and UI Frameworks. We talked about the tools that are available to Ruby and Rails developers and how these combined with attitude within the community may have created the sweet spot that Rails now occupies. He also mentions that conferences should blur the line between speaker and attendee.
Bruce is a great guy and I think you will enjoy this interview.
