This should be fun a night, I will kick off with a light hearted look at Cruise Control - it is amazing how many projects still do not use Continuous Integration. My plan is take demos and a few slides - knowing the Architect Group the audience will soon be talking more than me ;)
Next I will give a more formal presentation on Software Estimation - it will be a little dry, but I expect people in the room will liven it up with amusing tales from the field. We all have tales to tell of estimates which went awry.
The Architects group is really meant for Architects and CTOs with 10+ years experience. Even are you not an Architect (yet!) come along this month and enjoy these basic topics. Be aware that most regulars will call out any BS from presenters, I fully expect to be challenged and hope to learn a lot from other attendees.
