Equipped with my graphic board, pens, sunglasses and shorts I set sail for the Scrum Gathering in Orlando. Having attended two awesome gatherings in the past, the bar was set high - however, I was far from disappointed.
From the offset, co-chairs Anu Smalley and Kate Megaw knocked it out of the park by entering the stage to the sound of 'Starman' by David Bowie, whilst wearing convincing spacesuits complete with helmets. This was their genius way of setting the Gathering’s theme 'Infinity and Beyond: Transforming the World of Work'. With three tracks on offer, ranging from beginner ('Mission Control'), intermediate ('Orbiting the Earth'), to advanced levels ('Agile Galaxy'), there were more than enough sessions to choose from for all 1100 attendees. Let’s not forget that this was the largest Scrum Gathering so far.
