Much Ado About Agile V - 2010
November 01, 2010 to November 05, 2010 For our fifth annual conference “Much Ado about Agile”, we gathered another “who's who” in the industry, including Jeff Patton, Esther Derby, Dan Rawsthorne, Christopher Avery, and Josh Kerievsky. We also had some returning speakers, such as Linda Rising, Michael Feathers, and Johanna Rothman, as well as Jonathan Kohl (who was at our Exploring Agile Testingmini-conference earlier this year), and a number of speakers from our local Agile community. This year's keynote speaker was Chet Richards, a retired intelligence analyst and Air Force Colonel, who was a close associate of the late US Air Force Colonel John Boyd beginning in the mid-1970s. Scaling agile, agile testing, building and managing teams, integrating agile with non-agile processes and with legacy tools are, of course, natural topics for our conference. Presentations and tutorials offered at the conference covered all these topics and, as always, also include some “hard core” technical sessions.
Agile Vancouver believes that, in the complex world of information technology and software development, many different roles and many different approaches must coexist and collaborate to be successful. Agile Vancouver is actively working with the Project Management Institute, International Institute of Business Analysis, and other groups representing professionals involved in the software development process, and inviting participants and attendees from all related professional organizations to attend and participate in this conference.
Special Conference Events
Annual General Meeting and Reception
As in past years, the Vancouver Agile Methods User Group (aka Agile Vancouver) held it's Annual General Meeting during the conference.
A new feature that we tried out this year is One-on-One Sessions with our Agile experts. Session requests were booked on a first-come-first-served basis, and each session was 30 minutes long.
Once again, the conference was held at the Plaza 500 Hotel at 500 West 12th Avenue in Vancouver. View Larger Map
