Hands-on experience report; Scrum in a Distributed team environment

Scrum is one of the most common agile frameworks in software development. Using Scrum with your distributed  teams can be somewhat different to using scrum with your collocated teams at home.

In this meet up, Fredrik Lindberg will share his experience from applying Scrum in a distributed context with an offshore team, what he has learned, what he could do better and what he will change in the future.

Fredrik Lindberg is a Senior Software Developer and Scrum Master at More Software Solutions, Norway. He has gained international experience working in both Finland and Germany prior to his experience working at More Software Solutions with distributed teams in Exilesoft, Sri Lanka.

    Not what I expected. As a Scrum Master with many years experienced, I didn't get anything new from the presentation.

    I note some of the comments point to that the title was misleading. I did not actually set this myself and apologize for not correcting it before the presentation.

    I was asked to hold a presentation about Scrum and distributed teams for a mixed audience of both experienced and unexperienced people. I think this was a nice experience even if the presentation did not please everyone. This was my first time at the meetup so it was very hard to know what people would expect.

    A little too much basic information, to little about the challenges and possibilities of being distributed.

    It was not hands on at all. I was expecting more illustrations and examples of a distributed team doing scrum. The points presented are too general and debatable. If it was presented in the context of an illustration or case study, we might see the reason why he thinks his point was good. A good point with case study is that it has ups and downs, success and failures, and we the audiences can extract the "best practices" in a more contextual manner and in the way we see fit to our own context.

    A bit too basic this time and sometimes hard to hear (I could have moved closer!).
