First Kanban Conference

This item in japanese


David Anderson, David Laribee and a crew of others have organized the first conference to focus on Lean Kanban Process and Practices. The conference will be held in Miami, Florida, May 6-8th (originally scheduled for Feb) and features keynotes from Dean Leffingwell, Alan Shalloway and David Anderson. The other speakers include most of the players in Kanban movement (Corey Ladas, Karl Scotland, Eric Landes et al.).

The conference will be small with only 125 attendees and two tracks (Lean and Kanban). David Laribee promises to talk about: "introducing pull systems at the edges of an Agile team (based on experiences at VersionOne), JIT'ing retrospectives, and rethinking software development activities and practices -- architectures, continuous integration, source control -- through the Lean lens, which would have us release regularly (on a feature basis, in fact)."
