The Agilistocrats! at 2015 Scrum Gathering in Phoenix - Picks for Day 1

The Agilistocrats! are at the 2015 Global Scrum Gathering in Phoenix. We spent today the CST/CSC Retreat which is hosted by the Scrum Alliance for the trainers and coaches and was facilitated by Maria Matarelli.  We’ll be here all week and we’ll be doing podcasts each day of the conference.  The sessions kick off tomorrow (Monday, May 3, 2015) and one of the “good problems to have” is that the folks who selected the sessions for the Gathering did such a great job that the hardest part is actually choosing between the great sessions that are taking place. 

If you are a First Timer at the Gathering or aren’t sure what session to hit, these ones are pretty much can’t miss. We’ve been to a bunch of these and know a lot of the presenters so we decided to do a podcast where we put together a list of the sessions we are most excited about for Day 1. 

Some of the folks we mention during the podcast were interviewed about their session by Dave Prior for Projects at Work. If you’d like to get a taste of what they’ll be talking about on Monday, you can follow the links below next to the names.

We’ll be posting a podcast each day of the Gathering so keep checking back for more.
