Craig and Tony wander the lunchtime floor on day 2 of Agile Australia conference in Sydney, looking for more interesting people in the Australian Agile community. They chatted to the ones who couldn’t quite run fast enough away from the microphone including:
- NZ Ben Gracewood (Vend) and Anders Ivarsson (Spotify) – overview of Ben’s talk “What if there were no rules?“, Tony learning a new word (connaissance) and the motto of not being a “duck” is his talk and Anders about his talk “Autonomy and Leadership at Spotify” and that we shouldn’t call Spotify a model!
- Chris Chan and Dylan Verheijden – the (Agile) Australian tradition of the Tim Tam Slam, Linda Rising’s keynote and her myth on smart people not being rational, James Shore’s keynote and inspirations around the Agile Fluency Model
- Bernd Schiffer and Poppy Schiffer (#agilebaby) – Bernd’s talk “Concrete experimentation in Agile environments” and the example of getting pregnant as a complex environment, David Marquet’s keynote which is also an example of a complex environment
- Erwin Van der Koogh (Elabor8) – talk on “7 Habits of Highly Effective Organisations” and how Agile hasn’t really helped us and how we need to think beyond our current thinking
- Robert Loomans and Shane Sendall (Suncorp) – David Marquet’s keynoyte on making change in a regulated space, James Shore’s keynote on mapping Agile to fluency and not maturity and being aware of the cargo cult plus the issues with DevOps
- Mirco Hering (Accenture) – Mirco’s talk “Adopting DevOps practices for systems of record – An experience report” and how to take packaged products and apply DevOps techniques
