Every year Agile Alliance challenges the Program Committee to come up with something new, different, and a bit experimental. This year Agile2016 track chairs George Dinwiddie and Doc Norton offer 14 sessions in the Audacious Salon track modeled after salons of the 1700s in France.
The Audacious Salon
Starting in the late 16th century and blossoming in the 17th and 18th, the salon was a major influence in the development of French culture, art, science, and politics. The Audacious Salon track reprises this embrace of the unknown and the different. The Audacious Salon is a place where strongly-held ideas can be discussed in civility so dialog can lead us places we have not yet dreamed. It’s a place to compare experiences and expand our own with the richness of others. A place to offer insights and hear how they fit for others as we hear the insights of others and test our own beliefs against them.
These sessions will encourage bold and daring dialogs that give rise to new collaborations with peers, perhaps unlikely peers, and lead to a future of exploration in fruitful directions.
Come to Audacious Salon sessions ready to discuss brand new ideas brought forward by highly-experienced experts in several fields. Expect active participation, conflict, and passionate conversations that continue outside of the room and beyond the conference. Speakers for this track will not be revealed because it is the conversation that is the star!
