#xpman 100 – Monthly Meetup

leave a comment »

We made it! 100 sessions of XPManchester, 100 months of last minute organisation par excellence.

Taking the averages per session, 100 monthly meetups roughly translates to…

  • 50 announcements made the week before
  • 50 announcements made the week of (like this one)
  • 200 uses of the word ‘Connascence’ by Kevin
  • 500 pints of post meetup cider drunk by Mark
  • 12 hours arguing whether you should write a test or not
  • 48 consecutive hours arguing about ‘the right way’ to write a test
  • 10 hours convincing people to use Cucumber
  • 30 hours convincing people not to use Cucumber
  • 300 unique anecdotes of how scrum sucks
  • 10,000 lines of kata code written by you lot

Join us this month this month for a look back at our lifetime as a user group, a celebratory drink or two to mark the occasion, a light-hearted kata exercise and hopefully a good catch up with some old faces.

We’re at Plant NOMA, from 6:30 for a 7:00 Start.
