Well, isn’t the Agile Australia conference turning into a diverse event! This year, we’re offering everything from a dinner date to a morning fitness class, and all this on top of the most relevant Agile presentations, case studies, and workshops in Australia.
Our pre-conference workshops will be held on Tuesday 29 February 2012, with workshops on Lean, Kaizen, and Kanban; essential tips for Agile leaders, coaches, and thinking like an Agilist; AND technical workshops on NoSQL Databases, Pattern Languages, Continuous Integration and Delivery; there’s even a workshop on Agile for beginners! You can choose to register for a half-day of workshops (2 workshops); or a full day (4 workshops). Check out the workshop schedule for more info.
If you want to make the most of your trip to Melbourne, or spend more time with the new people you’ve met at the conference, we’ve got just the thing. Dinner with a Stranger is an easy and informal way to organise a meal with other conference delegates like yourself. We’ve already booked tables for Wednesday 30 May 2012 at some of our most highly recommended eateries in Melbourne – modern Australian cuisine, Italian, Greek, Indian, Chinese, Vietnamese… You simply need to add your name to the sign up sheet that will be pinned to The Open Space wall in the conference networking area, and hey presto! Instant dinner party!
We’ve also made sure you won’t fall behind on your morning exercise routine. Enjoy an invigorating outdoor group fitness session exclusive to Agile Australia 2012 delegates on Thursday 31 May 2012 at 6.30am. Visit the conference special events page for more information.
There are heaps of other opportunities to network and socialise with the vibrant Agile Australia crowd, including Rally’s Welcome Reception and ThoughtWorks’ Open House, a conference cafe sponsored by Aconex and more.
Earlybird registration for the conference closes this Friday, 30 March 2012 so be sure to get your registration in.
Lastly, don’t forget that the caption comp for the latest edition of the AgileTODAY magazine closes this Friday!
