Two Code Retreats & 10th Software Craftsmanship Meeting with Corey Haines

I am very happy to announce a few very interesting events, coming at the end of this month:
Code Retreat with Corey Haines:

Corey Haines is a Journeyman who went for an year of pair-programming tour.
Corey is highly involved with the Software Craftsmanship movement and is a frequent speaker on various conferences on the matters of code quality, skills and professionalism.

We will host 2 code retreats events on January the 25th and January the 26th (These are the same events, so please register only to one of them).
The details and the registration can be found here: Code Retreat - Take I, Code Retreat - Take II.
*** The number of seats is VERY limited ***
Please hurry up to register and if you know that you cannot attend, please remember to release the place for somebody else to attend.

10th SCISR Meeting

As you already guessed, Corey will be the key speaker on our next meeting.
The meeting will take place on Thursday, January the 26th.
The agenda and the time frames will be posted separately.
Please follow up the registration page; I will update the agenda, the location and the time frames once it will be decided.
(Please note, that there are some difficulties to find a big place to host the event. If you have suggestions, please feel free to contact me).

Agile Practitioners

For ones who are interested, Corey (and for the due diligence me and other group members too) will give a talk on Agile Practitioners conference on January the 31st.
More details can be found here on the conference's page.

Sponsorship

If you are interested in those events (and you should be ;)), I am still seeking for sponsorship to help me with the logistics of hosting Corey in Israel.
If you would like to propose some sponsorship, hosting the 10th meeting, taking Corey out or giving him a tour to Kibbutz :) please feel free to contact me.
