Agile 2016 | July 25 – 29 Atlanta, GA
The Agile 2016 Conference in Atlanta is right around the corner! The forecast for July 25 is … 96 degrees with high humidity. It’s a good thing I’ll be inside, where it’s air conditioned, and enjoying the amazing lineup at this year’s conference. I’ve been using my blog to post my recommendations. I’ve shared my stories and thoughts on each day, if you missed them check out: Monday, July 25 and/or Tuesday, July 26.
Now, on to Wednesday, July 27.
The Journey from Monolith to Microservices: A Guided Adventure (Mike Gehard)
I’m really interested in the application of the “microservices” ideas to data warehousing.
Failing @ Scaling: Don’t Panic, and Carry a Towel (Em Campbell-Pretty)
Two of my favorite things – Em Campbell-Pretty talking Agile at scale, and The Hitchiker’s Guide to the Universe! Doesn’t get much better than that!
Value mapping with fewer dollars and more sense (Natalie Warnert)
I’ve known Natalie for several years and seen her present a few times. She’s got a lot of knowledge on and passion for her topics, and always brings something useful to the conference. This is a good topic that will give participants a lot to think about.
Intentional Learning – Map a Successful Strategy (JoEllen Carter, Claire Moss)
A core aspect of Agile is continuous improvement – for individuals as well as teams and systems. I’ve known JoEllen for several years and am confident this will be useful for attendees.
The Fast Foundation Workshop: Setting Up Projects for Success (Jeremy Kriegel)
I first met Jeremy, a creative, kind and knowledgeable UX guy, at Agile 2013 in Nashville – he was wearing one of the coolest pairs of glasses I’ve ever seen! The conversation took off from there, and we became friends. I like the premise of this session and know I’ll learn something new about “just enough” design up front.
Delivering BI projects using Agile (Syed Rayhan, Gurushyam Mony)
Of course I look forward to this session!
Agile Architect – Turning Followers into Leaders (Chris Edwards)
Architecture is so important, and yet a bit difficult to frame in an Agile approach. I know our team will benefit from learning about intent-based leadership.
Jumping off the hamster wheel with Kanban (Julia Wester, Anna Kovats)
I’m very happy to see more sessions on Kanban and limiting WIP at this conference!
Didn’t I say there are a lot of amazing sessions this year at Agile 2016? My next post will cover all of the Agile 2016 events scheduled for Thursday.
