I found a fantastic line in the Wikipedia definition of “hacker”:”Hacking entails some form of excellence, for example exploring the limits of what is possible, thereby doing something exciting and meaningful. Activities of playful cleverness can be said to have “hack value.”
On Tuesday March 19th at 6:30 pm, Tanya Snook (aka @spydergrrl, girl geek extraordinaire, noted blogger and co-chair of UXcamp Ottawa) will talk about the ethos and practice of hacking, and how and why we might all benefit from adopting the principles of hacking to our everyday lives. Taking the spirit of this presentation to heart, Agile coach Ellen Grove will build on Spydergrrl’s Principles of Hacking to address how you can hack your own agility to benefit yourself, those around you, and maybe even your organization.
No charge to attend. RSVP (requested but not required) through the Agile Ottawa Meetup group.
When: March 19 2013. Doors open at 6 pm for networking. The workshop will begin at 6:30.
Where: Fusebill, Suite 203 – 232 Herzberg Road Kanata, ON K2K 2A1 (map)
