    Certified Scrum Master (CSM) Training
    through
    McMenamins Kennedy School

    A Certified ScrumMaster® helps project teams properly use Scrum, increasing the likelihood of the project's overall success. CSMs understand Scrum values, practices, and applications and provide a level of knowledge and expertise above and beyond that of typical project managers. CSMs act as "servant leaders," helping the rest of the Scrum team work together and learn the Scrum framework. CSMs also protect the team from both internal and external distractions.

    To earn your CSM certificate, you must take a CSM course from a Certified Scrum Trainer (CST) or Endorsed Scrum Trainer (EST) and demonstrate your progress through our online CSM test. The first step toward your CSM is familiarizing yourself with Scrum. Then attend an in-person, two-day (16 hour) CSM course taught by a Scrum Alliance Authorized Trainer. After successfully completing the course, you will need to pass the CSM exam. To get a passing score, you must correctly answer 24 of the 35 questions. You will be eligible for 16 Scrum Education Units (SEUs) upon completion of this course. After you pass the CSM exam, you will be asked to accept the License Agreement and complete your Scrum Alliance membership profile.

    This 2 day (16 hours) course fulfills the classroom requirement to become a CSM.

    10% of PROCEEDS WILL GO TO CHICK TECH PORTLAND https://portland.chicktech.org/

    Agile Leadership Workshop

    Agile development methods and practices are radically different from ‘waterfall’ or sequential, phased approaches. Agile development has become mainstream in software development over the last decade and has recently spread beyond software to other domains. It is important for leaders and manager to understand how to build, develop, and lead Agile teams -- not just for your company, but also for your own career.

    This workshop introduces leaders and managers to a cohesive set of methods, practices, and principles to maximize business results from Agile and Lean development, while also cultivating a workplace where people thrive. The workshop defines and clarifies the roles of leaders, first-line managers, middle managers, and executives using materials drawn from over a decade of Agile and Lean adoption experience covering tens of thousands of people within Fortune 100 companies. It also addresses what does and doesn't work well in Agile and Lean adoptions across a diverse set of global cultures.

    The workshop topics are highly dynamic and customizable. ~80% will be based on participant interests. These are a few of the topics participants can choose from: -Agile mindset -Shared leadership -Great teams -Work environment -Resources -Experiments -Vision -Common goals -Shared learning -Welcome change -Iteration -Mastery -Diversity -Reflection -Sensemaking -Visualization -Deliver Value

    This class is designed for leaders and managers of Agile and Lean teams. This includes executive and organizational level management at all levels. Leaders and managers in non-Agile and Lean environments will also find the workshop refreshing and helpful as the concepts are broadly applicable.

    After completing this course, participants should: 1) understand the Agile and Lean mindset, and the business case for Agile and Lean product development 2) understand the main tenets of mainstream Agile and Lean methods 3) understand the role of the manager on Agile and Lean teams, and leadership styles that work 4) know how to establish and shape an environment for successful Agile and Lean adoption 5) understand the role of the customer and other non-development roles in your company 6) know how local and corporate culture affects Agile and Lean adoption 7) recognize common pitfalls and know how to avoid them

    Solutions Thinking for Product Managers

    Product managers and product teams face unprecedented challenges as business environments and product ecosystems become increasingly complex and unpredictable.

    Customers have tremendous freedom to choose among competing products, and user experience has become a big factor in many purchase decisions. Time-to-market pressure is unrelenting, while product complexity and technical challenges keep increasing.

Solutions Thinking helps teams balance business, usage, and technology to create a compelling and sustainable set of products and services to meet the customer’s current and future needs. Solutions Thinking helps teams go from opportunities to solutions using a value-driven approach, and works with traditional, Agile, and hybrid development life cycles.

    Many teams just focus on making products when they should be thinking about developing solutions. Solutions Thinking blends a unique collection of proven industry models into a coherent methodology for solution development. The approach is specifically designed to work in complex environments.

    Who typically attends? Product managers, Product owners, product planners, product marketing, architects, designers, product engineers, and others working on holistic solution discovery, definition, design, and delivery.

We'll discuss Bootstrap, SCSS, Jekyll, Github, and even touch on responsive design and jQuery. Everything we'll cover is free/open source, smart, forward-thinking, and made by developers for themselves and their peers—built as solutions to specific problems.

    Agile Project Management Workshop with Chris Sims

    This is a full day, experiential introduction that focuses primarily on the project management elements of Agile. It's ideal for anyone who is going to be or wants to be invovled in an agile project: developers, product people, managers, and of course, project managers.

    Course Description:

    On a software project, uncertainty is certain. The customer will change their mind, a 'must have' feature will be discovered, deadlines will move, or an unexpected competitive threat will need to be countered. The agile approach to project management allows the team to easily adjust to these changing conditions in order to produce the most valuable software possible.

    This experiential workshop teaches the fundamentals of agile project management, and is recommended for everyone who will be involved in an agile project. We will explore the key roles, responsibilities, interactions, and processes that make a successful agile project happen.

    Participants will learn:

    • Estimation
    • Release planning
    • Prioritization
    • The rhythm of iterative development and delivery
    • The flow of deliverables
    • Roles and responsibilities
    • Communication on an agile team
    • Empirical process control
    • Agile metrics
    • Simple tools for managing agile projects

    The workshop focuses on practical 'how to' skill development, while providing enough theory so that participants will understand why the techniques work. Interactive exercises allow participants to learn by doing. Class notes, suggestions for further reading, and free follow-on consulting are all included to ensure that the workshop's lessons can be effectively applied back in the 'real world'.

    BTW: We want $550 for the privilege of hearing us speak.

    Eclipse Ganymede DemoCamp

    We are inviting individuals to participate at Eclipse DemoCamps around the world to celebrate the Eclipse Ganymede release.

    The DemoCamp is an opportunity to showcase all of the cool interesting technology being built by the Eclipse community. They are also an opportunity for you to meet Eclipse enthusiasts in your city.

    The format of a DemoCamp is pretty informal. The idea is for a group of Eclipse enthusiasts to meet up and demo what they are doing with Eclipse. The demos can be of research projects, Eclipse open source projects, applications based on Eclipse, commercial products using Eclipse or whatever you think might be of interest to the attendees. The only stipulation is that it must be Eclipse related.

    Given the theme of this DemoCamp edition, we'd like to have lots of Ganymede project presentations.

    To attend please RSVP on the Eclipse wiki page.

    Generation Y - They're Here! Are You Ready?

    Some 64 million skilled workers will be able to retire by the end of this decade. They will be replaced by GenY, the children of Baby Boomers. According to Bruce Tulgan, a thought leader in future workforce, “This is the most high maintenance workforce in the history of the world. The good news is they're also going to be the most high-performing workforce in the history of the world. They walk in with more information in their heads, more information at their fingertips.” They're smart, digitally wired, motivated by “now” not the future, self-absorbed and, possibly, tattooed and pierced. As CEO’s, CFO’s and top leaders your challenge—particularly if you are a Baby Boomer—is to help your organizations figure out how to attract and motivate these workers, avoid operating out of false biases and create work environments that reduce barriers to their high performance. GET CLUED IN Come to this engaging event to: • Learn what it means to be “Generationally Competent” • Get accurate insights to separate Gen Y myths from realities • Get ideas for how to change the way your organization operates to accommodate this generation while keeping other generations connected • Learn strategies and tactics for personally relating and communicating to this segment of the workforce.

    JRuby Pre-RailsConf Hackfest

    McMenamins Kennedy School

    Hey there JRubyists and JRubyists-to-be...if you're planning to be in Portland the evening of Thursday, May 29, there's going to be a sponsored JRuby hackfest for you!

    The event is going to be at the McMenamins Brewpub/Restaurant at the Kennedy School. We'll have a room set aside for around 40ish people, so please RSVP via email or comments. There will be a taco bar and beers/beverages provided!

    JRuby Hackfest!
    Thursday, May 29, 6:30PM - whenever
    McMenamins at the Kennedy School
    5736 N.E. 33rd Ave.
    Portland, OR 97211
    

    We're pushing this event as a real hackfest, so bring your laptops and apps you are running or want to run on JRuby. At least Tom Enebo, Nick Sieger, Ola Bini and I will be there, so we'll probably be able to get you up and running. Otherwise, if you don't have an app, stop by and we'll give you a walkthrough of JRuby and maybe there will be a bug or piece of code you can help out with.

    I want to thank LinkedIn for initiating this event...Tom and I and the other JRubyists are too busy to set these sorts of things up, so it's great to have community members take this initiative. LinkedIn is also sponsoring, along with Joyent and Sun Microsystems.

    Remember, please RSVP in comments or by email so we can get an idea of headcount. And if you have any suggestions for things you'd like to see or hear about or work on at the 'fest, let us know!
