Announcing Lean & Kanban 2009 Miami

without comments

(Rescheduled to) May 6th-8th

I’ll be speaking, as will many of the leading thinkers in the Lean and Kanban software movement. Definitely worth a look at the site, and I really hope to see many of you there!

The announcement from kanbandev:

The Kanban conference is happening and the registration site is open.

The site is a little basic at the moment. David Laribee and I sat up
in the small hours and got to this minimum marketable feature state.
We’ll both be offline for a few days over New Year. We’ll make the
site look pretty and add some more features next week. For now you can

We’re giving members of this list first priority on registration. The
event is limited to 125 folks. We expect it to sell out. We’ve
selected a superb venue the Mandarin Oriental Miami located on South
Beach at Brickell Quay right on the water.

Because of committed sponsors like Net Objectives and Ultimate
Software we are able to keep the registration fee down to only $800
per person for the full 2.5 day event. Registration includes an invite
to our evening reception on February 18th courtesy of Ultimate
Software. Breakfast and coffee breaks are included all 3 days. Lunch
is included on Wednesday and Thursday 18th and 19th.

Wednesday 18th February – Keynote Alan Shalloway – Lean Track and
Kanban Track sessions
Thursday 19th February – Keynote Don Reinertsen – open space all day
Friday 20th February – Keynote David J. Anderson – lightning talks for
2 hours

Please register now to avoid disappointment and book your flights to
Miami. Please be sure to make a reservation with the hotel. Ask for
the “David J. Anderson & Associates” event rate of $250 per night. The
hotel has indicated that it will honor this rate for extended bookings
prior or post the event subject to availability.

Our confirmed speakers are:

David J. Anderson
Alan Shalloway

James Sutton

and not yet confirmed…

Max Keeler and Linda Cook
Bob Stoddard (from the SEI)
Sterling Mortensen

Many of these people are regular contributors to this group and have
together created and lead the kanban movement over the last 18 months.
I believe this is the finest list of proponents of Lean software
development ever assembled.

With our 2.5 day format, we have one day of sessions in two tracks,
one day of open space and half a day of lightning talks. This will
give all attendees the chance to work with the experts directly.

I also need to thank WordClay who have kindly offered to sponsor the
publication of the proceedings. Each attendee will receive a book of
the proceedings – papers written by our many speakers. The book will
be available to everyone else after the event. Price to be determined.
