There has been some feedback to my previous post, which is great, so I thought I would answer some of the queries.
After a slow start, I am now optimistic that there will be about 20 people at the first meeting. This is wonderful and shows there's a real interest.
I am hoping to get the XP Yorkshire website up and running soon at www.extremeprogrammingclub.com. There will be a forum on this site.
Richard, to me Extreme Programming is all about best practice - this definitely includes agile methods. In the past, when trying to justify new processes to sceptical managers, I've used the term 'agile methods' rather than Extreme Programming. There's a sexier ring to Extreme Programming, though.
Richard, Andy, Keith, it would be great if you were willing to do a talk at one of the meetings.
Andy, I have now joined the Agile Yorkshire group, and was glad to see that someone had already posted about the meeting. I am also intending to make contact with http://www.agilenorth.net
and see if we can tempt any of our Red Rose neighbours to cross over to this side of the Pennines, even if just for a night.
It seems from the feedback that people would quite like some talks. Do we have any requests for topics that are of particular interest?
