Open from 3:00pm Sunday until 12:30pm Friday, Open Jam is a place to share questions and quandaries, talk to the experts, demonstrate software and techniques, and experiment with emerging Agile practices and ideas. Sessions don't need to be formal, like the ones on the program (in fact it's more fun if they are not). Anyone can convene a session at the Open Jam stage based on a passion and a commitment to make the session happen.
To share ideas, you can talk, write, play, or engage in the excitement of PechaKucha: up to ten people doing 20 slides set at 20 seconds each, for a total of six minutes and forty seconds per person. We'll be having a PechaKucha each evening just after the end of the programmed sessions. Come share your excitement and your passion for any topic that interests you!
We'll also have a Coaches Corner, where aspiring and experienced coaches can come and talk to an experienced Agile Coach. Explore topics, questions, and challenges in the area of Agile Coaching.
The Agile Manifesto Signatories will be stopping by the "Park Bench" throughout the week-long conference to make themselves available to attendees. Visit the "Park Bench" -- a casual, comfortable setting to share ideas, ask questions, challenge perspectives, and grow new possibilities. Come, share, ask, interact, learn and create.
Bring your crucial issues and ideas, your passion and your commitment to the Open Jam. Walk away with valuable new insights into topics that are relevant to you today.
