Agile Brazil 2010 – notes and my ppt
The Agile Brazil 2010 conference was a huge success. The positive feedback was eminent during the event (tweets and conversations), and is now reflected in many blog entries describing the positive experience by so many people.
I am proud for the following reasons:
- I was part of the conference organization team. In fact this is one of the best teams I have been part of. The synergy amongst the team members were noticeable and IMO it reflected the collaborative nature of Agile.
- My tutorial was very well received. “Throw your cards at the wall: effective use of the Agile Card Wall” was a 1 and ½ hour tutorial on the Agile Card Wall. People liked it because it showed XP, Scrum and Kanban concepts in a very practical way, based on my experience on several Agile flavored projects.
- ThoughtWorks (TW) Brazil was a great contributor for the event! The TWers in the conference were: presenting (7 speakers), attending sessions, having fun, and chatting with people. And the TW booth was really fun! There was no marketing stuff; instead a bunch of cool people chatting, playing Wii, or watching the world cup games.
- The Agile Brazil community is really cool! It feels like there are no stars, but a lot of cool people sharing experiences, talking about agile, and hanging out together.
Below is the uploaded version of my session. I have trimmed it a little.
