Agile Open Holland 2009, September 10 & 11
Agile Holland proudly presents the next Agile Open in The Netherlands, on 10 and 11 September 2009, in Baarn. Agile Open is a two day not for profit conference, meant for anyone with some degree of experience with an agile way of working. It is designed to allow agile practitioners to meet in self-organizing groups where they can share their latest ideas and challenges, hopes and wishes, experiences and experiments. We follow an Open Space format to foster collaboration and allow the conference to take its direction from the participants themselves - it's a peer to peer conference where you co-create the conference while it happens.
The conference theme is: My method is bigger than yours...or is it?
Word cloud of agile, Scrum, Kanban & XP created with Wordle.
A development method is nothing more than a named cloud - a set of practices, principles and values labeled under a common name. Whether you realize it or not, each of these named clouds have fuzzy boundaries and overlaps with others. Examples of named clouds you may be familiar with include Scrum, eXtreme Programming, Test Driven Development, DSDM, Lean, Refactoring and more recently Kanban, User Story Mapping, and Dimensional Planning.
Previous Agile Opens have taken place all around the world, in Holland, Belgium, France, USA, Argentina. Some of the topics covered at previous conferences are:
