Tabar has had a unique relationship with Alistair Cockburn, helping to bring him to Australia several times, in recent years.

Alistair is not currently scheduled to travel to Australia. You can contact us or sign up for updates about Alistair.

Dr Alistair Cockburn is one of the initiators of the agile movement in software development, helping write the Manifesto for Agile Software Development in 2001, the Agile Project Management Declaration of Interdependence in 2005, and co-founding the International Consortium for Agile in 2009.

He is also known for describing Software development as a Cooperative Game, creating the oath of non-allegiance, finally defining Use Cases, and for developing the Crystal family of agile methodologies.

When not doing all that, he likes to travel, dance, dive, or sit underwater.

Agile has become overly decorated. Let’s scrape away those decorations for a minute, and get back to the center of agile. This course is pure agile, for all job titles in any industry. It sets the standard for entry-level learning, and re-establishes the subtle aspects of agile development for intermediate practitioners.
