I’ve been reporting this week from Orlando, Fla., at the Agile 2010 conference. This morning I had the opportunity of talking to Phil Brock, managing director of the Agile Alliance which puts on the conference.
The 2010 conference had originally been planned for Nashville, but due to flooding, had to be moved to Orlando, which was no small feat for the conference planners. Despite that unexpected glitch, the conference has been going very smoothly. I’ve heard several people remark how they’ve found the conference bigger and better than previous years with more attendance and great sessions.
Last night I attended the Agile Alliance Board meeting at which the Gordon Pask Awards were announced. Winners were Elisabeth Hendrickson, president and found of Quality Tree Software, and Elizabeth Keogh, a lean and agile coach and trainer. The Agile Alliance chooses people who they believe bring revolutionary ideas to the agile community and change the way agilists work.
