Have you ever wanted to understand a bit more about Agile? What is all the buzz about? Why so many people are passionate about using Agile principles and practices to help them deliver?

Agile Ottawa is going back to the basics! The agenda is very open, but, there are two requirements. One, read this introduction (see comments for alternate source for introduction) to Agile — before coming. It is short. It is really concise. And it is very informative. But, it will surely raise more questions than it answers. And that is the second requirement. Bring your questions. Bring lots of them. Write a few of them down before you come.  I won’t promise that we will answer all your questions but we definitely will cover the top asked questions of the evening.

See you on Tuesday, March 8! Bring a friend. Bring you manager. Heck, convince your executive team that this is the best possible way they can spend a Tuesday evening :)  Besides, we tend to socialize a wee bit after the meetup and everyone who has ever been to a conference knows that is where the learning really starts to happen.

This session will be facilitated by Glenn Waters of Westboro Systems.
