April PADNUG - Doing Scrum Under a Waterfall - Couch to 5k

Intel Hawthorn Farms 3 (HF3) Campus
5200 NE Elam Young Pkwy
Hillsboro, OR 97124, US (map)



Dave Harrison will be joining us to demonstrate how you can adopt Agile techniques in a way that fit in YOUR company's structure! You will learn how to align your work to align with company goals. It will help eliminate wasted code by getting more regular feedback and by trimming out features in your software that the business wants but doesn't need. This is can be vital in helping to cull out technical debt. The best part? You may see yourself less frustrated during your day at work... and putting in less time over the weekends and nights trying to put out fires. You will see such things as: The Tolstoy Test (How do you know if you’re doing REAL Agile Development?) Finding your own way up the mountain Devs are from Mars, BA’s and PM’s are from Venus (very different perspectives of work) Sneaky guerilla tactics to get Agile working in your company – grassroots style Cut your administration/project management time down to 2 hours a week TOTAL – getting your dev leads back into the game! Advanced capacity planning and keeping your promises Lessons Dave learned by failing spectacularly!

But there's more! Scott Hanselman and Rob Conery of "This Devloper's Life" will also be joining us in the meeting.

Event Detail 6:00 pizza, 6:30 meeting, 8:00 Rob and Scott, 9:00 After Words at Morgy's Pub
