Agile Software Development Q & A Panel

We’re breaking away a bit from traditional presentation format and hosting a discussion on Agile Software Development where we invite the attendees to participate in Q&A with our panel of experts in the region on the matter.

 

WHAT IS IT? 

The agile software development Q&A panel is a follow up
to popular Q&A session held during our first talk on agile
development.  For this meetup, we will have 4 members of the community with experience living and breathing agile software development here to take your questions!


You will certainly have the opportunity to ask questions of
the panel live.  However, we are also TAKING
QUESTIONS FROM SUBMITTION PRIOR TO THE EVENT
.  As this event will be mediated by Tim Hess of Berkshire Hathaway Specialty, we ask you RESPOND WITH YOUR QUESTIONS BY 3/26.  Submitted questions can be anonymous, or we would be happy to credit the person with the inquiry at the time Tim asks it of the panel. 

*Please do RSVP for planning purposes, and absolutely TELL A FRIEND!.  SUBMIT YOUR QUESTIONS FOR THE PANEL TO [masked], OR leave them in the comments section. 

 

There will be a networking hour starting at 5:00 PM.  During this time pizza and beverages will be provided.  The Q&A session will begin at 6:00 PM. At that time, the mediator will begin with a few questions gathered from you to help get the ball rolling.  After which, there will be open Q&A and open discussion.  It should be a great time.

 

Following, we are happy to invite you to the After Hour Social, hosted by New Resources, for more one-on-one networking and conversation.  The After Hour Social location will be close UWSP, and stay tuned for location confirmation.

    I wish I could attend more of these. But I have went back to school, and have tons of homework between Monday and Wednesday's classes. I just can't give up my study/homework time Tuesday evenings.
