    AgilePDX Downtown Pub Lunch

    Paddy's Bar & Grill

    It’s AgilePDX downtown pub lunch time again this Friday. This month the starting topic is ALM’s—Agile Lifecycle Management tools. We have regular attendees in this group who use Team Foundation Server, there are Version One and Rally users, and some folks have experience Jira. Does anyone use ScrumWorks? Are there other promising tools emerging?

    Some folks believe the best way to manage an agile project is manually—post it notes, flip charts and planning boards on the wall. Some are willing to tough it out with Excel. What’s your preference and why?

    Look forward to seeing you all there.

    AgilePDX Downtown Pub Lunch

    Paddy's Bar & Grill

    This is an open discussion on all things about agile software development. This month:

    At Renewable Funding, we recognize that a successful agile team depends on the ability to constantly inspect and adapt its practices to changing circumstances and new information. Over the past couple of years, our team has made several notable changes to our process. Some were good ideas, while others didn't work out as well; but we've managed to learn from these experiences and grow as a team.

    Several members of the Renewable Funding team will reflect on a few of our "noble experiments"---such as our feature-branching release process and 90-minute iterations---in a round-table discussion that will touch both the merits and drawbacks of these approaches and demonstrate the collaborative effort we use to chart our course.

    AgilePDX Downtown Pub Lunch

    Paddy's Bar & Grill

    Description: Effective group learning is synonymous with effective group communication and high performance. Language Hunting is a group learning methodology developed to save endangered languages through the tools of accelerated learning. Willem Larsen, President of Language Hunters, will lead participants in an experiential understanding of how accelerated team learning works.

    Bio: Willem has worked in community education for the past 15 years—at the Oregon Zoo, OMSI, Tryon Creek State Park, and the Eddy Foundation Land Trust. He was a founding partner of Cascadia Wild! and a founding member of TrackersNW. Through his work in environmental education and local natural history, Willem came to realize that endangered indigenous languages are storehouses of priceless ecological knowledge, and this led to the development of Language Hunting.

    Willem has presented Language Hunting at many Agile gatherings such as AgilePDX, Agile 2011 in Salt Lake, Agile Games 2011 in Boston, as well as being hosted at Agilistry Studios and the SolutionsIQ Agile Training Center.

    Willem believes that languages, traditions, and skills are treasures that communities hold as a whole—only by learning together can we create the rich lives we want for each other.

    AgilePDX Downtown Pub Lunch

    Paddy's Bar & Grill

    This month Adam Light will briefly reprise his Agile 2011 presentation for us over lunch. Adam’s talk “Chasing the constraint beyond the development team” is abstracted below:

    Successfully adopting agile methods creates a high likelihood that the constraint in your value chain will migrate from software development to another business process. As your agile journey proceeds, more agile won’t necessarily deliver continued improvements! Unfortunately, systemic improvement often takes considerable time and effort, and your agile effort may be seriously impaired while you work to improve a constraint that lies beyond your control. This session will address methods for identifying, predicting, and responding to organizational constraints beyond the development team.

    Come lunch with us and exchange news from the conference!

    We’ll be at Paddy’s Bar and Grill. We have a table reserved in the back room from 11:45 to 1:15.

    Bring a colleague who hasn’t come before. It’s always great to meet new agile advocates.
