-======== Our Theme This Year ============-

Philly hails her victor of Gettysburg,

General George Gordon Meade, of course.

And that fine little guy who served under him . . .

His nickname - Old Baldy - his Horse.

-========================================-

Five days prior is the 130th anniversary of the Statue of General Meade in Fairmount Park near the Please Touch Museum.  Suitable suggestions on how to commemorate this are encouraged, starting with signing the petition to move his statue to City Hall.

The statue went up fifteen years after Meade’s death, in front of several thousand people and many Civil War veterans, on October 18th, 1887.

After the dedication, the Fairmount Park Art Association held a gala at the Union League downtown with six hundred guests including General Meade’s West Point classmates, a number of his personal staff and aids, many who had served under him when he commanded the Army of the Potomac. 

Meade was a Philadelphia native and co-founder of Fairmount Park.  But General Meade's most remembered accomplishment was his defeat of General Robert E Lee at Gettysburg on July 3rd, 1863.

The theme of this year's Agile Tour is

  • Be Smart
  • Be Brave
  • Keep on Keepin' On
  • These are how battles are won.

I sincerely appreciate all of the effort and preparation that was put into this event!  I got a lot out of each session that I attended and will definitely try to implement some of the things that I learned within my Scrum Team and organization.  Thanks again!

I'll add my thanks here. This was my first Agile Philly conference and I really enjoyed it and I have some things to immediately put to use. Thanks to all the coordinators, presenters, and attendees sharing at Lean Coffee et al. I went here looking for the presentation decks today because it was that good! I now see John Voris' comment so I'll check back in a few days.

Thanks John Voris for organizing such a great event. And thanks to all the speakers -  I had a great time, and learned a lot from them and from the other attendees I met.
