Learn. Practice. Explore…
When the Agile Alliance offered me the task of conference chair earlier this year I was excited about this great opportunity. For many years I have been speaking, attending, and assisting in the selection of the program. Now I was going to get to lead the conference. One of the key things that I pitched to the committee during the selection process was more content for experienced practitioners. This leads me back to the title of this post. The metaphor for this year’s conference describes stages of learning. For those of you who are familiar with the Japanese martial arts this is referred to as Shu Ha Ri. These stages describe a path from learning to mastery. It is my goal and the goal of the Program Committee that the program that we put together for Agile 2010 will provide something compelling for each stage of learning.
In the coming weeks I will be providing more information about the conference, the program committee and ways for people to get involved in the conference. You can also follow us on twitter @agile2010.
