Things I took out of QCon:
- I want to play with

- Selenium looks like a good place to start for automated website testing

- I'm going to become a certified Scrum
MasterMistress. I believe Agile in some form or other is the most efficient way to run software development, but there are a LOTof lessons to learn in order to get it right. And number one lesson is you need the right team.
