Alistair Cockburn: On the Agile Manifesto
ALISTAIR COCKBURN was there when the Manifesto happened. He helped make it happen. He is a signatory. He is one of a kind. He has stories and lore about the origin of the Manifesto that you cannot make up. During this event Alistair connects the past, present and future of the Manifesto, and explains how to translate the Manifesto principles into effective Agile practices you can use today.
This is sure to be a highly informative and entertaining meeting. (Let the record show that previous conference sessions by this speaker have included dancing girls (on one occasion) and men in kilts playing bagpipes (on another.)
If you miss this one-of-a-kind event in Boston on 5/29 featuring Alistair Cockburn, you have no one to blame but yourself.
