    AgilePDX - Virtual Pub Lunch: Agile Tools

    Please RSVP at our Meetup event and get the Zoom connection info: https://www.meetup.com/AgilePDX-User-Group-Portland-Metro/events/256511527/

    Has traffic or location prevented you from joining an agile discussion group? Not close to PDX or SEA Then a virtual "pub lunch" may be the answer!

    This agile lunch discussion is a collaborative effort between Seattle and Portland agile minds, and we're hoping it won't stop there. The event is held on a zoom conference line. We've learned using video is best, and you might consider your environment before joining -- find a quiet space where you won't be interrupted or feel self conscious. We're monitoring chat as a back channel, so if you can't find a spot in the discussion, add your question in chat and our hosts will try to work it in.

    This week's topic:

    Agile Tools: what are the best "agile tools"? Our world is filled with apps and programs to help us with our jobs, from work management, communication, white-boarding, prototyping, source control, IDEs, to virtual pairing systems and beyond. Some are very useful, ensuring we communicate and work effectively. And sometimes tools are in the way, and we get stuck in a labyrinth of features & functions.

    Our agile tool discussion will lead with the manifesto value of "Individuals and interactions over processes and tools." Join the discussion to tell us what your favorite tools are to support individuals & interactions. Come and hear what your colleagues think and share your own experiences with tools that have supported you. We are not endorsing any specific tools as part of this chat, but likely many different ones will be discussed.

    AgilePDX - Virtual Pub Lunch: Value Stream Mapping

    Have traffic and work schedules prevented you from joining an agile event on a topic which could help you or your teams? Then a virtual "pub lunch" may be the answer!

    This weeks topic: Value Stream Mapping: this Toyota technique is often associated with lean manufacturing - and it can be a powerful tool applied to agile software development processes: Visualizing your workflow and inspecting it for "waste" to delivery more value fluently. But there are many questions: what is the definition of waste (or value)? When is this technique best applied? Join us to talk about your experience mapping value, and hear how others have worked with this process to what effect.

    Have traffic and work schedules prevented you from joining an agile event on a topic which could help you or your teams? Then a virtual "pub lunch" may be the answer!

    Topic: Agile thinking: Compare Scrum, Lean, Kanban, XP and any other methodologies you have used. What has worked? What hasn't? Maybe one methodology is better suited for certain situations or work efforts. Or you have seen great success going beyond frameworks and methodologies. Join us and tell us about the spices in your kitchen, and let's compare notes!

    AgilePDX: Virtual Pub Lunch on Hiring - Agile Outside of Engineering

    Have traffic and work schedules prevented you from joining an agile event on a topic which could help you or your teams? Then a virtual "pub lunch" may be the answer!

    This weeks topic: Agile Outside of Engineering! The tech industry has collaborated for some time now to find new and better ways to tackle complex problems and deliver value to our stakeholders. And it seems companies have taken notice and agile "good practices" or "lessons learned" are being adopted outside of engineering groups. Methods like limiting your work in progress, planning & working in smaller increments, daily updates & coordination, review & adapt sessions are popping up in other departments and disciplines. Invite your friends to share stories and insights of such agile practices outside of software teams and IT departments. We can all learn from each other and would love to see new voices join, sharing unique challenges and solutions.

    AgilePDX: Virtual Pub Lunch on Hiring - What qualities do you hire for?

    Ever struggled to get to a downtown or West side location to join a lunch discussion? Then a virtual "pub lunch" may be the answer!

    This agile lunch discussion is a collaborate effort between Seattle and Portland agile minds, and we're hoping it won't stop there. The event is held on a zoom conference line. It is modeled after the AgilePDX Downtown Pub Lunch, which is an open round table with discussion topics sourced from the participants. Towards the end of each lunch discussion we will ask for topic suggestions and vote which one to pick for our next meeting. And we'll close out the discussion with a quick review feedback - so we can learn what works and what doesn't.

    For this kick-off meeting, we will borrow the AgilePDX Downtown Pub Lunch topic about Hiring: What qualities do you hire for? Technical skills, learning attitude, team fit, emotional intelligence,... and to what extent does your search focus on building team diversity? These questions are only the beginning.

    Join us in this new experiment and connect with the greater community of the Pacific Northwest. Visit our meetup page to RSVP and get the zoom conferencing information: https://www.meetup.com/AgilePDX-User-Group-Portland-Metro/events/252496023/
