As we gear up for the 2013-2014 season of Agile Ottawa meetups, you may be interested in changes we’ll be making to our monthly meetings in response to feedback we’ve received about the group:
Alternating meeting locations: We’re going to try alternating meeting locations between the westend and downtown, in response to feedback that getting out to Kanata at the end of the day is an impediment for people who are located more towards downtown or points east. The September 10th meeting will hosted by CTE Solutions at Holland Cross, which is accessible to public transit, street parking and local beer. If you have any leads on other centrally located places (ideally suited to holding 30-50 people) that might be willing to host an Agile Ottawa meeting, do let us know!
Agile 101 as part of each Meetup: Borrowing an idea from Agile New England, we’re going to add an Agile 101 talk during the networking time (6:15-6:45) before the main speaker in order to help Agile Ottawa members who are interested in Agile fundamentals in addition to the great breadth and depth that our featured speakers tend towards.
What other changes would you like to see to how Agile Ottawa meetings work? Leave us a message, or come to the next meeting on Sept 10th (full details to be posted shortly) and let us know what you’d like to get out of the monthly meetups.
