Agile evangelists claim that extensive written requirements and specifications can be dispensed with in favor of lighter-weight ‘stories’. It sounds easier, certainly, but can it really be as good? Won’t all of the important details get lost? Join the Engineering Managers Support Group as we stage a participatory showdown between traditional and agile specs. May the best specs win! Of course, we will also feature our usual round-table discussion of your pressing engineering and leadership issues.
This month, our new host is ILOG, makers of market leading business rules management systems. They are providing us with meeting space and pizza!
We also are proud to announce that JetBrains, makers of IntelliJ, ReSharper, and TeamCity will be raffling off a copy of any one of these products.
