We had out November Bartlesville .NET User Group Meeting on 11/14/2008.  It was an amazing meeting!  We had 55 people in attendance.  There were 48 developers and 7 recruiters.  This was an amazing turnout.  I was actually a bit nervous going into the meeting as only 25 people had RSVP'd.  However, I knew with the reminders and the marketing I put out the weeks before the meeting that we would have a great turnout.  And we did!!  It was an amazing presentation by Raymond Lewallen on Behavior Driven DevelopmentRaymond does a great job in presenting Behavior Driven Development and I have had a lot of feedback telling me that everyone loved Raymond's presentation.  I really appreciated Raymond taking his day off and driving from Oklahoma City to Bartlesville, roughly a 2.5 - 3 hour drive one way.  My desire to have Raymond was two-fold.  I had the pleasure of seeing Raymond present at School of Dev in May in Tulsa.  I knew at that point that I needed to get Raymond to Bartlesville for the user group.  Why?

1) I needed others to hear the benefits of BDD from someone besides myself.

2) I wanted the Supervisors in our group to hear about BDD from someone besides myself.

The presentation worked.  I have had some great discussions with my supervisor about BDD and may even be able to pilot BDD in the near future on a project.  Hopefully this is a sign of change as one of the biggest problems I see in our group is the inefficiencies of rework.  Thanks Raymond!  If you guys get a chance check out Raymond's blog and see if you can get him to present at your group.  You won't be sorry!
