Celebrating bounty & abundance, reflecting on what is essential & what can be set aside.
We’re inviting you to let the good times roll down at the Agile Mardi Gras on February 16, 2021. Join us for a gathering of change-makers who are still uncovering newer and better ways of developing software (and more). This world-wide, online Mardi Gras will be a reflection on the next 20 years of the Agile Manifesto.
Whether you call it Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Tuesday, Carnevale, Fasching, Fasnacht, or the Mardi Gras, this day is marked by global celebrations linked to traditions originating in old Europe. Carnival has been continuously refined, reinterpreted and reimagined around the world—just like Agile. Taking inspiration from this, we want to focus on renewing our old individual and cultural Agile practices.
Our theme is Making the Old New. Please leave your nostalgia behind. Let’s make this Agile Mardi Gras a fun quest for new abundance, equity and inclusion—and better ways of developing software.
Carnival celebrations are known for costumes, masks, revelry and satire. This invites revellers to share their truth in safety. We’ll create and hold space for you to do the same. Dress up welcome! This gathering will be a lightly facilitated event that’s part Mardi Gras parade, part World Cafe, part Open Jam, and part Retrospective.
