Inside Agile Days
Agile Days is the largest Russian conference on modern software development and management methods. 2 days, 1,500 people, 10 thematic tracks, over 100 sessions and workshops. What process do we use to organize Agile Days? Is it really agile? And how can we use agile approaches in such big bang project like a conference? How do we discover what content is valueable or not and get feedback from clients long before the conference? How do we organize the work of a flat team of 20 people? And what tools do we use to synchronize the work of a distributed team? We will also discuss how agile coexists with waterfall in such complicated project like organization of a conference.
