I’d like to invite you to join us at the Agile2008 conference, from 4-8 August in Toronto (Canada). The program has been published recently and contains a huge amount of great sessions… warning: choosing which sessions to go to will be extremely difficult this year! Keynote presentations will be delivered by James Surowiecki (author of The Wisdom of Crowds), Robert C. Martin, and Alan Cooper (author of The Inmates Are Running the Asylum).
The conference has adapted the metaphor of a musical festival: it is organized as a collection of stages – mini conferences around specific themes.
Together with Linda Rising, I’m responsible for the stage on agile and culture. Our stage program has three parallel tracks of tutorials, workshops, experience reports, talks, about topics like managing change and resistance, agile transition experiences, politics, ethics, story telling, jazz improvisation, and haiku-driven development.
We expect up to 1600 participants. Last year the conference sold out very quickly, so don’t wait too long to register.
