I could not believe what I have just found!

My OOPSLA 2000 conference badge.

It was on a folder with some old USA documents.

Uau, and only a few weeks ago I posted a blog post about a preface where I mention OOPSLA 2000 on it.

It was my first talk on an international conference. And it was when I first came across agile methodologies.

For some odd reason, I bought one book at the conference. It was a book by Kent Beck. I was interested on design pattern and smalltalk back then. But Kent Beck had just released a book with a weird name: eXtreme Programming. Oh well. I bought it and was exposed to something different.

Needless to say, it is one of these books that change the directions you take going forward.

I am not on smalltalk or OO anymore. But I have to say I still mention many things I learned from my first agile book.

Btw, my talk at OOPSLA 2000 was about a methodology and an architecture for Object Oriented development on the internet. This was the topic of my MSc thesis.  A few years later, I dropped the idea of big upfront architecture design, but I kept working on how to perform great inceptions (the methodology part for getting the team aligned about the work).
