Sneak Preview

Excited to have Agile advocate, Janet Gregory, joining us this Winter for a P3X keynote!




Renowned Agile testing coach and practitioner, Janet Gregory is also the co-author of Agile Testing: A Practical Guide for Testers and Agile Teams and contributor to the collective wisdom of 97 Things Every Programmer Should Know. With an engaging teaching style and a passion for Agile development and testing processes, Janet leads highly popular courses around the world and, along with Lisa Crispin, founded the Agile Testing Fellowship to grow a community of practitioners who care about quality.


What will you be sharing at this year's P3X, and what inspired you to give this talk?

I’ll be sharing the idea of using deliberate practice to improve techniques we may already know and want to get better at, or something we want to learn. I was inspired by watching my granddaughter and her coach, and thinking about how I could apply that to my own skills (which are not sport related), so I interviewed her coach and her, and started reading.


Which other talks from this year’s conference are you excited about? And why?

It’s hard to choose just one or two talks. There is such a great line-up with some of my favourite speakers and there is such a good variety of talks. For example, I’m looking forward to Gitte Kilgaard’s talk on bringing humanity back to the workplace, and Portia Tung’s talk on playful leadership. And then, there’s a talk on story storming Martin Schimak which I’d like to know more about … and it will be such a busy conference for me.

Do you have any blog posts/podcasts or materials you think people might enjoy reading before coming along to your talk?

I’ve been busy writing and publishing a new book called Agile Testing Condensed: A Brief Introduction this past 6 months and just released it on LeanPub at the beginning of September. So, I haven’t been doing much other writing or podcasts lately. Hopefully that will change soon.

What made you want to be part of P3X this year?

What do you think would be the best part about having a pet dragon? (and what would its name be) 🐲

I have several pet dragons 😊 They sit quietly on my shelf and watch me work and keep me company. I have one very large dragon and it sits out by my pond by our summer place – keeps the deer away.

Catch Janet at P3X 2019! More info on our Programme Page


Behold the power of laughter! 😆😂🤣 Explore the social, physical and psychological benefits of fun with Aino Vonge Corry at this year's P3X




The founder of Metadeveloper, Aino Vonge Corry is an advocate for Agile Development and a fan of software architecture, teaching, learning and fun. With a masters and a PhD in computer science, Aino also teaches how to teach computer science (hence 'Metadeveloper')

What will you be sharing at this year's P3X, and what inspired you to give this talk?

I will talk about how important laughter is, for you, for your coworkers, and for every relationship you have.

Which other talks from this year’s conference are you excited about? And why?
I am looking very much forward to "Agile for Introverts" by María Castro, because I think this is an important and largely overlooked problem with agile development methods.

What made you want to be part of P3X this year?

The speaker lineup is amazing :-)


Do you have any blog posts/podcasts or materials you think people might enjoy reading before coming along to your talk?

I have not written anything about laughter, but I have written about retrospectives: http://metadeveloper.com/how-to-facilitate-distributed-retrospectives/


What's your favourite (family-friendly) joke?

I love this Blackadder quote:
Pitt the Younger: "I intend to put my own brother up as a candidate against you."
Blackadder: "And which Pitt would this be? Pitt the Toddler? Pitt the Embryo? Pitt the Glint in the Milkman's Eye?"
