I might be going a bit overboard on Agile this week with blogs, primarily because I’m at Agile2016, one of the largest gathering of us weirdo, hippie agilists – along side some still buttoned up folks – in the United States.
Upon walking in I was met by a wonderful group of volunteers; ready and eager to help as well as to laugh at my silly jokes. I was also faced with my company’s competitors but this week we are not mortal enemies, but fellow agile journey-takers on a mission to get more info, sharpen our skills, and most of all meet more agile folks.
There is excitement in the air; a sense of urgency as people make their way to the keynote speaker session. Others are headed down to put the finishing touches on booths or just talking with people they haven’t seen since last year. All this excitement could also be because of the copious amount of coffee available to the attendees!
Overall, I’m looking forward to a week of getting to know a new set of people, talk “shop” for a full week, and listen to some thought leaders in the space. Watch for Facebook Live, Periscope, Live Tweets, and other nonsensical stuff coming from me this week from Agile 2016.
