Reading: Agile 2018 Interviews: Day Four

Agile 2018

This year, at Agile 2018, we had a ton of thought leaders from the Agile community stop by the set of SoundNotes to talk about the state of the industry, give us sneak previews of their speaker sessions, and to promote their latest projects/endeavors. As always, it was a blast catching up with everyone and we’re already looking forward to next year.

We streamed all the interviews—live—on our Facebook page, but here they are again…in case you missed them.
