Agile Coach Camp Canada 2013

These are the notes I took during Agile Coach Camp Canada 2013, held in Toronto, June 14-16, 2013. Several pople saw me typing furiously on my iPad during the Camp, and asked if I could make my notes available. So here they are. These notes are very incomplete, sine I could only attend a sub-set of the sessions, and I have a hard time typing and listening at the same time! They are likely to have inaccuracies.

I’d be happy to have people comment on the notes … send me your corrections, additions, notes you took, links to videos and I’ll add to what I’ve written here. In particular, I know videos were taken at a number of the sessions, but I don’t have links to all of them.
