3 Great Presentation Streams!
Our 3 streams are uniquely based around Australia's love affair with 'Swimming', the glorious combination of water and the great outdoors. Featuring experienced and accomplished local speakers, these streams will educate, entertain and inspire you. Whether you're looking to dip your toe in the water or go deep diving, you're invited to come swimming with us at Scrum Australia 2013!
Stream 1 - Swimming in the Pool
If you are learning how to swim or wish to improve your swimming technique, the pool is the place to be. Similarly, the Scrum Australia ‘pool swim’ will have a focus on specific Scrum practices and enablers with speakers presenting various techniques to help you get started or improve your Scrum game.
Stream 2 - Between the Flags
For those who want to venture into more unpredictable territory, Scrum Australia’s ‘beach swim’ will focus on applying Scrum outside of the controlled pool environment with speakers presenting their real world Scrum experiences.
Stream 3 - Exploring the Open Water
This final stream is not for the feint-hearted but rather for those who wish to venture deep into the vast open water. Scrum Australia’s ‘open water swim’ is an exploratory space with speakers presenting deeper, more advanced topics.
In the self-organising spirit of Scrum, our conference will have an Open Space event! Open Space is focused on discussion and conversation about the topics that people feel most passionate about. Open Spaces have been successfully conducted at many Scrum Alliance Global Gatherings from Atlanta to Barcelona with many participants relishing the flexible structure and opportunity to exchange ideas.
To ensure that we have the best possible Open Space event, Alan Cyment, a highly experienced Open Space facilitator is making the trip from Buenos Aires, Argentina to lead what promises to be a great experience you won't want to miss.
