Introductory Agile Topics

Agile Ottawa Meetup: Tuesday, March 8, 2011

Networking from 6:00-6:30pm; presentation from 6:30-8:00pm. Location is Adobe’s offices on Preston Street.

LOCATION CHANGED: 600 March Road, Kanata. Alcatel-Lucent building. Visitor parking access from March Road. New map with pointers to Entrance and Parking.

No charge to attend. RSVP (requested but not required) through Meetup. Can’t attend? Watch the live video stream (but being there is so much better!!).

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.

  1. The link to this short introduction does not seem to be working.

    I have tried the link over multiple days and it has worked for me. I have had an occasion where it did not work.

    It is also can be read online at http://refcardz.dzone.com/refcardz/scrum but it requires registration to download.

  3. The link works today but I registered for refcardz.dzone anyway – it looks like a good site. Thanks Hope to see you on the 8th.

  4. IMPORTANT – VENUE CHANGE FOR THIS EVENT

    Folks, due to a conflict we won’t be having this session at our regular location at Adobe Systems. Instead the folks at Alcatel-Lucent have kindly come forward to hold the event at their 600 March Rd. location. More details to come.

    Dave…
