Anybody interested in an Agile+UCD best practice sharing session in the SF Area in July?

Hi everyone -
My name is Andrew Sandler, and I manage the User Interface Design team
at Salesforce.com. Last October we made an organizational-wide switch to
Agile Development Methodologies, based mainly on Scrum. We did two small
releases that were "finished" under ADM, and we're wrapping up our first
end-to-end Agile release very soon. As part of my education, I've had a
number of interesting conversations with people on and off this list. The
more I discussed Design and Agile, the more I realized that there are a
number of best practices for development, but less for design. To that end,
I'm volunteering to host a day-long working session for design practitioners
(UI, IA, Usability, etc.) at our offices in San Mateo at the end of July.
This isn't intended to be a gripe session (although I'm sure we can fit one
in), but rather a sharing of what works for you in your company. Any
non-proprietary artifacts and deliverables are welcome. I'm assuming that
we'd have an IA / Design track, and a Usability track but I'm open to any
great ideas. Anybody interested?
