KanBan Beers - ( further down the rabbit hole )
Lets meet for drinks, coffee or beer for one last evening for 2013! w00t
We'll be mostly continuing the discussions around KanBan boards, and topics will be put onto post it notes onto a table, depending on number of folk present, I will shout "go" and with a stopwatch the table will discuss the topics, pros and cons and examples war-stories etc, until I shout Stop (10 minute pomodoras), 2 minutes to swap tables and order beers, until all tables have had a chance on each topic and then the next batch of topics will be placed on the tables.
NB! This event is open to everyone, not just the folk who attended the KanBan morning. All welcome.
Folk are free to move from table to table.
