See me at Agile 2007 in Washington or at Ruby and .Net conferences in Austin

I will be attending the Agile 2007 conference in Washington D.C. in August 13 – 17. I’m pretty excited about it. It will be my first conference outside of Texas in two years. I look forward to catching up with old friends, as well as meeting many people who I’ve met online in the past couple of years. At the conference, I will be teaching a completely reworked Watir tutorial. I will also be bringing my family with me, and we’ll be taking a side trip to Williamsburg beforehand. If you are a reader and will be attending, why don't you post a hello in comments, so I'll know to look out for you.

I will also be attending the Lone Star Ruby Conference in Austin September 6 – 8. I will be helping out with the Intro to Ruby session they are holding Thursday night.

I am also planning to attend the Alt.Net conference in Austin in October. This is being organized by my collegue Scott Bellware, who should have an official announcement out soon.

Agile .Net Developers Wanted

My company, Dovetail Software, has several positions open for .Net developers who are able to perform in an Agile development environment. We are a high-performance team looking for developers who are smart and eager for the high-degree of intensive collaboration that Agile development practices require. Frankly, we've had a hard time finding qualified people, so please let us know if you are a .Net developer who embraces test-driven design. We are looking for people already in Austin or willing to relocate on their own. This is not a telecommute position.

Dovetail is not a start-up, but what I call a "restart". It's a ten-year-old company that is developing a new line of products from the ground up. So it is greenfield development, but for a company with existing customers, continuing profitability and an established reputation as a vendor of CRM software that doesn't suck.
