Why Should You Attend Agile Development Practices 2009?
The Top Ten Reasons to Attend Agile Development Practices Conference
There are hundreds of things you’ll learn at Agile Development Practices that will boost your skill set and add value to your organization. But, to keep it short and sweet, here are the top ten reasons to attend! Want to hear directly from your peers about why they attend? Check out our Delegate Reviews
1. Hear one of the original signers of the Agile Manifesto describe the origins of agile, it’s profound impact on software development, and how agile practices may evolve in the coming years when you attend Alistair Cockburn’s keynote session “Agile: Resetting and Restarting”. Discover what is coming in your agile future.
2. Renowned agilist Mike Cohn presents four tutorials – “Getting Agile with Scrum”, “ADAPTing to Agile: A Guide to Transitioning”, “Prioritizing Your Product Backlog”, and “Agile Estimation and Planning”, a series that will put you on the fast track to agile success.
3. Mingle, network, and learn from our expert speakers at networking events scheduled throughout the week: Meet the Speakers, speaker book signings, Welcome and EXPO receptions, bonus sessions, Agile Presenter One-On-One and more!
4. Contribute more to your team’s success by attending Jean Tabaka’s tutorial “Writing Great User Stories”. She’ll lead you through a series of exercises in identifying and elaborating user stories, defining acceptance criteria, and estimating the work.
5. In a new tutorial, “Kanban Systems for Lean Development”, Corey Ladas explains Kanban, a self-optimizing process that can respond rapidly to changing conditions and customer demands. Leave with practical knowledge of ways that Kanban can help your team improve workflow and monitor progress during development.
6. Mingle with Mickey and his friends at Disneyworld and take some time to reenergize. It can’t be all hard work and no play!
7. The Agile Testing Workshop, a two day series of classes from agile experts Lisa Crispin, Dale Emery, Janet Gregory, Antony Marcano, and Jared Richardson, focuses on all the aspects of testing within agile development you need to know to be personally successful, and a valued contributor to your agile team.
8. Discover the future of agile leadership and collaborate with leaders in the industry at this year’s Agile Leadership Summit, sponsored by APLN.
9. Check out the latest in agile tools and services at the EXPO Wednesday and Thursday. Gather information, pose your toughest questions and get great conference swag! It’s a winning combination.
10. New this year! Schedule a 15 minute one-on-one session with an Agile Development Practices speaker. Bring your most challenging issues and come away with insight and food for thought at Agile Presenter One-On-One.
