- 9 Jun 2011: Rashina and Siva talked about XP2011 conference which was held in Madrid last month. The group discussed the The Top 10 Burning Research Questions from Practitioners and pondered on the feasibility of executing some of the suggested topics. The fact that the top 4 research topics from the list are been [or have been] addressed by members of our Agile Group at VUW did not escape our notice

- 23/3/11 to 26/5/11: several meetings (except a few when most people were away etc.) which included watching videos on topics within Agile, discussions, and pizzas!
- 16/3/11 (Wednesday 11am, Cotton Club). Agenda: Rashina is back and will give an informal talk about her experiences of doing her research (from the point of view of how she went about it rather than the research material itself).
