Agile 2012 Conference Program Announced
Conference chair, Mitch Lacey commented:
Building on the momentum of 11 years of Agile adoption and maturity, Agile2012 will offer more than 200 sessions, ranging from introductory to highly advanced topics. One of my goals was to increase the technical content at the conference, and I believe we did that, taking technical content from under 15 percent in 2011 to over 25 percent in 2012.
Across the board, each session aims to help practitioners and organizations capture the value of Agile software development. This year, we had more than 800 session proposals submitted. Our extremely selective peer-review process resulted in a program of esteemed Agile practitioners and developers – quite possibly our best one yet. As Agile processes are increasingly becoming widespread across the enterprise, the Agile Conference continues to deliver the most cutting-edge conference program in the industry.
According to the announcement on the Agile Alliance website:
Agile2012 offers multiple ‘stages’ to attract audiences with different interests. The stages within the program are proven to provide participants with a focused area of interest while offering attendees a wide choice of topics to choose from. Agile2012 will host a number of exciting and beneficial stages, including: adoption and transformation, Agile boot camp, business value/working with stakeholders, coaching and mentoring, collaboration culture and teams, development practices and craftsmanship, distributed Agile, enterprise Agile, insights, leadership, no-bull know-how, open jam, research in practice and user experience.
