Fadi Stephan presented on “Snowbird 2001 – A Behind the Scenes Look at the Writing of the Agile Manifesto” at the DC Scrum User Group on February 1st, 2021.
In February of 2021, the AgileReflect20 festival is celebrating 20 years since the writing of the Agile Manifesto in Snowbird, Utah.
Join the DC Scrum User Group and Fadi Stephan as we kick-off the festival with a behind the scenes look at what happened at Snowbird back in 2001 during the writing of the Agile Manifesto. In addition to the skiing, hot tubs and beers, there were some passionate discussions on various light weight methods, approaches and techniques. Find out how the event came about, who initiated it and why, how the location was picked, what were the objectives and agenda coming into the event, who was there and why, who didn’t make it, what were some of the heated discussions that occurred, how the values and the principles came about, what was included and what was left out, and finally, looking back in retrospect, what would the authors want to change or add today?
Here is the video and slide deck of the presentation along with a blog post.
