I'm heading to the airport in a few hours to attend the annual US Agile…
I was supposed to speak at this conference as well, but a couple of weeks ago realized that I had desperately screwed my calendar. I’m chaperoning 12 kids at BSA Summer Camp next week… the problem was that I had camp on my calendar for the week before.
Once I figured out my mistake, Agilemeister (Angeline Tan) was very understanding, and gave me a Get Out of Jail Free card. For that… I will be forever grateful.
If your not already planning to attend next week, this might be a little late… but here is some information on the conference and a link to the website. There are some great speakers involved… I hope you guys can make it.
