Fail Faire DC & UK: a celebration of failure
Fail Faire DC & UK is a celebration of failure as a mark of innovation and risk-taking. We have great speakers with fun, fast, Ignite-style presentations of their professional failures. Audience participation is not only encouraged, it is mandatory! We are all peers and none of us is perfect. Expect much laughter as we navel-gaze at where we have all gone wrong in ICT and international development.
Yet we LEARN from failure. Failure is no reason to be ashamed. Failure shows leadership, innovation, and risk-taking in pushing the boundaries of what is possible in scaling ideas from pilots to global programs. There is great value in examining our mistakes as we go beyond the easy and the simple. So while we encourage irreverence and humor, we are improving our profession too.
Fail Faire DC and UK are annual events, but they sell out fast. The wait list sells out a day or two later. If you would like to get alerts and updates on this and future Fail Faire events, please subscribe below.
Fail Faire was started by Mobile Active, who graciously open sourced the idea and the Washington, DC and London, UK Fail Faire events are an Kurante LLC production.
