[Audio Interview] Kent Beck - An Agile conversation (First Iteration)

Got something important to say?

If you feel you have something important to share with the community, something you're an expert at, and feel that everyone can learn a thing or two from you, read this, and maybe we'll get you on the air.

After almost 8 months of scheduling nightmare, I've finally had the pleasure of having a great conversation with noted author and speaker, Kent Beck. This is more of a conversation rather than an interview. The conversation revolves around (but not limited to) the following subjects: Kent's upcoming book, "Implementation Patterns", Is Agile just another fad? What is Appreciative Inquiry? Why is the 1st edition of "XP Explained" totally wrong and misleading in its attitude, and what makes the 2nd Edition better? When does Pair Programming break and how does Kent feel about the book "XP Refactored"? All these and more topics in this intriguing conversation.

There is much more we wanted to talk about, but Kent felt this would make for a nice "first iteration". Post your comments on this interview in this blog post and let us know what you'd like to hear about, or whether you agree or disagree with the topics in this conversation. We'll take all these into account during a future conversation we will record.
