The "Flash a Friend" Contest: A Covert Agile Give-Away!

If you're reading this blog, you're probably a believer that a good agile process can make a difference. And maybe you've recognized someone on your team, on another team, or even in a different company that you think would benefit from a little covert mentoring.

We'd like to help! We believe getting these cards in the hands of the right people can make a real difference. We're willing to put that belief in action.

Here's how it works:
    Cover Image For Agile in a Flash...
  • Email us at, recommending one person who you think should receive a free deck. You don't have to name names, you can say "my boss," "our architect," "my dog," "my cousin," etc. You can even name yourself!
  • Tell us in one short, pithy line why you think that this person/team would benefit from Agile in a Flash. 
  • We'll read the comments and pick our favorites.
  • If your entry is selected, we will contact you and get the particulars (names, addresses).
  • The person you recommended gets a deck of Agile in a Flash from us. No note, no card, no explanation.  
  • To thank you for being so helpful, we send a second deck to you!
  • We'll put the winning comments on a soon-to-be-pubished Agile in a Flash blog entry. (You can choose to be attributed or anonymous.)
Deadline for entries: Friday June 15, 1200 MDT

Promo Video Contest

Tim and I aren't videographers (although I do like his video, see the previous post in this blog). Nor are we in real, day-to-day teams right now (I'm doing on-customer-site consulting, tough to get permissions and such). So we're looking for someone to provide us with a cool video that shows your team's use of Agile in a Flash, and helps promote the book.

We're offering as a prize a ten-pack of cards ($110 at PragProg) for the video we choose as the best. In return, you'd grant us rights and permissions to use the video and whoevers' likenesses for promotional use.

Please email me (jeff at if you have any further questions about the contest.

Contest deadline: February 28, 2011

Legal stuff: This is all arbitrary, and Tim and I reserve all rights, including the right to not choose a video if none suits our promotional needs.
