Producing Software Groove
Agility comes in many forms. While you may start out using XP or Scrum, long term success will mean finding a groove which fits your company. This session provides a path for adopting or adapting agility which draws on the strength of the successful practices being used.
If you are wondering how successful communities find a collaborative groove, this session has many answers and ideas for those interested in producing successful agile communities. Working in pairs and as a large group, you will take a stab at defining how you might produce, learning about your individual strengths and challenges. Everyone will leave with some collection of skills proven as useful guiding newly forming project communities as well as long running projects and their extended communities.
