Agile Alliance Conference Updates

by Phil Brock

What happens when you can’t hold a physical conference event?

Conference organizers put in incredible amounts of work to invite speakers, review submissions, shape a program, and mold the experience-to-be for attendees. This, of course, is happening alongside all sorts of logistics planning: food and beverage orders, room sizes, audio/visual needs, flows of traffic to encourage networking. When that is blown away by events beyond our control, what happens next?

What’s next?

The teams are sifting through lots of ideas to bring new experiences to what everyone hopes will be a larger audience. People have thought about running things continuously for 24 hours to “follow the sun”. Ideas for social interaction with an overlay of educational content have been floated.

Agile Alliance is a nonprofit global member organization, supporting and serving the Agile community since 2001.
