SAN FRANCISCO AGILE
As a consumer, there are good things and bad things.
Good: there are lots of products, services in today’s world to choose from. So many that we may not be even aware of.
Bad: WE have to make the choice.
Being a typical Libran, it’s a difficult one for me.
Since my introduction to agile, there have been multiple conferences that I have been hearing about. I’ve been fortunate to attend some large conferences and some small ones. One such conference that caught my eye was SFAgile Conference. This is the 2nd year SFAgile will be held and got great reviews from 2011 attendees.
SFAgile 2012 is a 3-day “unconference” that brings together practitioners from Lean software development, the LeanStartup movement, and Agile software development.
It’s a refreshingly different conference format: a mix of crowd-sourced content that include workshops, talks, dojos, and open-space-inspired spontaneous sessions. There will be many ways to learn new things, share your ideas, and get your questions answered.
The unique part about this conference is crowd-sourced content through Ideascale. Submissions were accepted in “Waves” http://sfagilecon2012.ideascale.com/
Wave 3 is now closed but Wave 4 is open from April 9th to April 15th – Here’s some help with submission walkthrough.
Main conference site is: http://sfagilecon.org/ where you will find the information about:
This year, Keynotes will be delivered by: Steve Blank, Joshua Kerievsky and Jim McCarthy during the 3 days.

I’m excited to be a part of #SFAgile2012. Looking forward to meet industry experts, thought leaders, some old friends and to make new ones! I will be joining from Atlanta, GA while some great speakers will be flying in from outside of US.
