Agile Philly

Committed to helping members build better software

This year's Gordon Pask Award winners were Gus Power, Simon Baker, and David Hussman. Ultimately we'll read more about it at http://www.agilealliance.org/show/1656

The point of the award is to bring attention to folk that are either finding better ways to do Agile or who are working with others, face-to-face, to learn about Agile.

You can find out more about Simon Baker and Gus Power by subscribing to their blog http://www.think-box.co.uk/blog/ . Anybody know more about Hussman?

David Hussman is the mind behind devjam. Well known at agile conferences, he also goes "on tour" with No Fluf Just Stuff. Lots of experience with user story writing, coaching and coding. I have seen him sitting down and pairing on a FitNesse test with a coworker. His presentation style is awesome. Watch a couple of his videos to see what I mean. A very nice guy. I am glad he got recognized.
I agree with you. Haven't really met him personally but seems like a nice guy

Totally agree. I have had the opportunity to participate in one of his user story session, it was awesome. I would recommend him to anybody if you are planning to bring in consultant to get help with user stories, story decomposition, release planning and fitnesse.
