OnAgile is On The Way
Some of you may be wondering what I’ve been up to lately. Besides my day job, I’ve been busy, busy, busy. As part of my responsibility to the Agile Alliance board, I’m working with Declan Whelan to put on their first ever virtual conference — cleverly named “OnAgile” — on May 14th. The theme for 2015 is “Navigating the Future: Emerging Technical Trends and Practices”. Check out the Save The Date blog post on the Agile Alliance web site for more details.
I’ve planned a wedding (well, two weddings to be honest), I’ve planned an Agile Open (Agile Open Florida, that is), and now I get to plan a virtual conference. And yes, we are being agile about it, employing not one, but two Kanbans from the start. Super exciting! I’m sure this is just the first of several blog posts on my experience in putting on OnAgile.
