Agile came from small, colocated projects in the 1990s. It has spread to large, globally distributed commercial projects, affecting the IEEE, the PMI, the SEI and the Department of Defense. Agile now sits in a larger landscape and should be viewed accordingly. This talk shows that landscape, clarifying how classical agile fits in and what constitutes effective development outside that narrow area.
Dr. Alistair Cockburn is a world-renowned expert at what is called agile development, the early and regular delivery of business value through improved communications, fast feedback and staged delivery.

Agile 2009 is an exciting international industry conference that presents the latest techniques, technologies, attitudes and first-hand experience, from both a management and development perspective, for successful Agile software development.
Great Conference and Good Talk
I posted "Agile Safari" a while back where i had these three points:
1. Always deliver functionality
2. Develop in short manageable cycles
3. Make use of the customer
and no more. which is Agile from the perspective of a giraffe (software developer and hands on development manager).
I would love to know what you think
