The difference between caring and caring enough to do something

[Conference] feedback is a gift, huh? Then GIVE it to me [on paper]!

I’ve heard so much about feedback in my life. It’s a gift, always say thank you, continually ask for it…But let’s be honest, giving good feedback is kind of a pain and it’s hard to be good at giving it, especially in a “form” setting. I’m talking about conferences, and coming out of Agile2016 I’m assuming many of you know what I’m talking about.

The Dos and Don’ts of Conference Attendance – Retrospective on Agile2014 in Orlando, FL

Agile2014 marks another Agile conference this year. As usual it did not disappoint. This year was extra special because I was able to be a reviewer for the Collaboration, Culture and Teams session track and was also selected to present my session on the UX Runway. It was great to once again catch up with old friends and meet new ones; even some from my home state of Minnesota! Some Women in Agile also got together for an impromptu session in the Open Jam area and though I was not able to make it, I heard great things! After attending many conferences over the past few years I wanted to make a list of some of the things I’ve learned for how to get the most out of your time there.
