AgileTour Dublin – videos and presentations becoming available!

With over 300 attendees and an excellent standard of presentation, AgileTour Dublin last Thursday was a great success. Again thanks to my co-organisers and speakers – all gave freely of their time to ensure it was the best Agile conference in Dublin by a long shot!
