After the Tulsa TechFest this year we went around and asked several attendees and speakers what Agile Development was to them… then we asked some of the non-attendees that happened to be in the area. Here are some of the responses. Sign up now for the AgileDotNet Conference 2008 at

Dallas TechFest 2008. We caught up with Joseph Hill so that he could show us the the Mono’s team version of Microsoft Silverlight (called Moonlight). Joseph works for Novell as the product manager for the Mono Project. Mono is the open source, cross platform version of .NET. Moonlight is the open source implementation of Silverlight. Here, he’s showing us how the Mono team implemented Moonlight as a sub-set of the full Mono install… so that if you install the full Mono package, you have the ability to open (mopen) Silverlight XAML file directly, without running in the browser.

After the TulsaTechFest, Buddy Lindsey and I hit the streets where he explained some of the things that he learned at the event, like Silverlight, and decoupling applications with .net interfaces and a certain provider factory. There were over 1,000 people at the TulsaTechFest this year! (both days combined) and it was a blast! So many great speakers and sessions. Can’t wait till next year! (It’s rumored that next year’s Tulsa Tech Fest will be 3 days long – rawk!)

Oh yeah… Giovanni was there with his camera.
