Theme: The Agile Compass: Finding your Direction
October 14 & 15, 2013
David Brower Center, Berkeley
You don’t want to miss this! Imagine an event where experienced Agile practitioners and newcomers alike come together for two days to discuss, examine and otherwise brainstorm the most timely and relevant topics in Agile development today.
What is Agile Open California?
Agile Open California is a coalition of agile practitioners and advocates intent on providing an opportunity for learning, networking and growth to the Agile community in California and to others who are interested.
The conference is organized by leaders and volunteers from the local Agile community who are passionate about building community and advancing all things Agile. It is a not-for-profit event driven by volunteers and all the proceeds support the our time together.
What Will I Get?
* A 2-day conference (All day Monday and Tuesday)
* Up to 30 sessions to choose from each day
* Continental breakfast and lunch both days
* A networking reception on Monday evening
How Does it Work?
Using the Open Space Technology framework, we hold gatherings where sessions are self-organized around topics that are important to the participants. We invite you to take this opportunity to share your experiences, test new ideas and learn what other practitioners are thinking and doing!
This is the place to learn and contribute. At Agile Open Northern California you can attend sessions hosted by other participants or host a session of your own. Here is an opportunity to share your favorite topic with others. Or if you have a topic you don’t know much about, and would like to hear from people who do, you can convene a session and learn about your topic from the expertise of other participants.
Learning and meeting people doesn’t get much better than this. This event will blow your mind and touch your heart. Join us Agile Open Northern California and become part of the community.
