I attended the Agile and Beyond conference in March. This is a one-day, regional event with a little over 500 attendees. The opening keynote by Mary Poppendieck was very good, as her talks always are. I was intrigued by her discussion of Dunbar’s Number and how it relates to team size. I attended a few interesting sessions during the day, but, for me, the highlight was definitely the closing keynote by David Hussman. I hadn’t heard of David before, but he’s now definitely on my favorite speaker list. I thoroughly enjoyed his talk and I recommend watching it.
This was a very good conference and I certainly plan to go back next year.
