We have a great event in the works for Tuesday, February 11th… fresh from the success of our first “Fail Faire” Agile Ottawa event in December, we are keen to continue this engagement with Ottawa Agile community by hosting our very first “Success Faire”.
1. What’s a “success faire”?
A gathering where like-minded individuals share via short talks their success stories and extract the source of that success.
2. How does this work?
Interested participants will be given the opportunity to give a short talk to share their Agile success tale… tell us:
• What was the project or context of your idea?
• What were you hoping to do?
• When did you realize that your idea was working?
• What would you say was a the source of your success?
3. If I go, what do I need to prepare?
We will again be counting on the Agile Ottawa crowd to create a safe space for sharing. Bring your own story of success – big or small, we want them all! Come brag with us about how Agile helped transform your company, your project, your team and you! Who knows, maybe after a beer you’ll find the courage to share it with the group?
During the event… no live streaming, picture taking, blogging or tweeting unless the presenter gives the ok to do so. No third party success stories either… presenters must have been personally involved in the project they are showcasing.
And while we encourage you to prepare you own story, please don’t let that stop you from attending… if you want to come out and listen, that’s great!
Agile 101 – Creating Effective Teams
In the spirit of the evening, Ellen Grove will present this month’s Agile 101 talk about creating effective teams. In particular, Ellen will present an intro to Core Protocols.
Note that this is a free event, but the food and drinks are on your own dime. We’ll be gathering at the Royal Oak in Kanata.
Doors open at 6 pm for networking. Agile 101 begins at 6:15 and the main event gets underway at 7pm. Once again, all are welcomed… those who want to share their stories as well as those who just want to listen and have a pint. And remember, all Agile stories of success (big or small) are worth while sharing.
Please go to the Agile Ottawa Meet-Up Site to RSVP.
