KanBan Beers (further down the rabbit hole) Last Camdug event for 2013!

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.

    Unfortunately I'm on a la train back to Cambridge tonight. So I'm now very unlikely to be able to make it at a reasonable time in a reasonable state.
    Don't worry Alan! We can continue that testing discussion anytime. :-)

      I just realised this will probably be the last camdug event for the year, so will try to make this a general social as well. Table topics for those that want topics, for those who just want to come up and share a beer with us, that's also good!
