KaizenConf , so far, has been about…

  • Self-improvement
  • Corporate adoption of lean
  • Talking about how learning how to be a good developer and a good chefs are one and the same thing
  • Talking about the American economy
  • Talking about the meaning of feature
  • Talking about the interaction between France and Quebec from the 1960s
  • Talking about the cost of adopting technology and its value depending on the project / team size
  • Talking about the waste of adopting lean in the silo of IT
  • Talking about recognizing failure and success

I probably forget many, but my brain is obscured by the level of discussion and contribution that happens here. None of the PDC / TechEd events compare to the thrill you get when surrounded by extremely opinionated and excited people. I’m in geek heaven.
