Unfortunately, our interview with Ken fell through. Ken was very kind to offer time to sit with us, but due to multiple factors outside of his control, and conflicting schedules, we are deferring to publishing a mashup of interviews Scrum.org recently published on youtube - published with permission.

While there was a strong desire to sit with Ken, we are most interested in sharing his story which this show does. We are also very happy to share the paper that Ken wrote and presented (famously) in the 1995 OOPSLA conference in Austin, Texas

You can find the article at this thread on the Coalition

We hope you visit scrum.org, and consider following them on twitter, Ken on twitter, Dave West on twitter, and Eric Naiberg on twitter.

In our 13th interview with the Agile Manifesto Signatories, we were lucky to speak with Stephen Mellor.  Stephen sits with our hosts Ryan Lockard and James Gifford to discuss his background, his memories of the manifesto, and his current work with the Industrial Internet Consortium.

Hear Stephen's history with modeling, executable UML, and is views on software/architecture. Also, learn why Stephen felt his need to be at the event in Snowbird was to be (as he puts it) a "spy".

This interview is part of a larger series where @AgileUprising is attempting to interview the Agile Manifesto signatories.  You can the project status and links to prior interviews, here.

In this episode, we are "very excited" to welcome Martin Fowler (@MartinFowler) to the show.  Martin shares his story with our host, Ryan Lockard (@AgilePHL), covering his early days with Extreme Programming on C3 with Kent Beck, his first engagement with Thoughtworks (@thoughtworks) and of course his time with the Manifesto in Snowbird.  

While Martin admits to having little memory of Snowbird, he does provide a lot of new insight not heard in our prior interviews.  Specifically his work on the paper "The New Methodology" and his work with the XP Leaders Conference that pre-dated Snowbird.  While the conversation only briefly touches on Martin's memory of Snowbird, we spend about half our time discussing the state of Agile and Martin's unique wishes for emerging agile practitioners and developers.  In this conversation we discuss Martin's paper, "Flaccid Scrum".

An interview with the co-author of the manifesto, Crystal method founder, author, trainer, and global agile speaker Alistair Cockburn.  Alistair provides in depth context into what he was doing prior to, and during the manifesto creation.  Alistair is also presented with the notes Jon Kern shared, and his reaction to some notes is quite compelling as he sees what Jon handwrote next to his name!

Feb 22 2017 Update:

In our state of podcasting newness, we forgot to ask Alistair his hopes for the future of agile and its practitioners.  He gracefully sat with us again for a brief addendum to his episode.  The new content starts around minute 32, but the entire show is worth a re-listen!  He discusses his paper 'Collaboration: The dance of contribution', the upcoming events with his Heart of Agile conference (Pittsburgh event is April 27 2017).  Alistair even mentions his work with Teachable.com, when this links are ready we will update these notes.
