Agile North is growing fast!
As it turns out, there are many people who are passionate about Agile methodologies who live North of the GTA. While there are plenty of events about Agile in Toronto, it isn't always easy to juggle work, family life, and attending events downtown.
That's why we started Agile North!
If you an Agile enthusiast in and live in Barrie, Orillia, Gravenhurst (or anywhere else north of Toronto -- we won't judge!) Agile North is always looking for enthusiastic members!
(Also, if you're a co-worker of mine who doesn't want to disappoint me and suddenly find that their SharePoint site collection was irreversibly deleted, you should come too)
We are open to anyone interested in learning, teaching, or just sharing about Agile methodologies.
Just so we're clear: we're talking about the software development methodology, not a new form of yoga :-).
Our next Agile North Meetup will be May 10th at 7 PM ! We'll be hosting an Open Space for networking, and brainstorming your latest struggles. This is the time to share your experience, ask others for insights, or just hang-out with other people who too, just a few hours ago, were explaining to someone else why it isn't a great idea to follow a "big bang" approach (or some other equally bad idea).
Unlike our previous events, there will be no workshops or guest speakers; just an opportunity to meet other like-minded people.
(We'll also mock people who couldn't make it, because they won't be there to defend themselves)
As usual, our hosts at Creative Bean will keep their doors open (and their coffee brewing) just for our event.
Krista Parker, the Agile guru and co-host of this group promises that she'll have swag. (But we heard that before, didn't we?)
So, what are you waiting for? Coffee, swag, smart people! Register now (it's free!)
