    Thanks for pulling this together. I thought it was great to get a recap of many of the sessions that I wanted to attend, but didn't get the chance to while at the conference.

    BTW, for those who asked about the Pay It Forward Scrum course: http://agile.conscires.com/agile-training-and-scrum-training-chicago-02/ (Notice course content will NOT cover all the topics listed; the topics are a backlog, prioritized by the class, so some items may not get done but they'll be the items the class finds least valuable ;)

    Great meetup tonight. I started a new discussion item with the referenced information from the speakers. The "conversation" feature of meetup does not appear to support hyperlinks. The URL for the discussion is:

    Six individuals shared some of their top insights after attending the Agile 2012 conference in Dallas, TX. Many individuals were not able to attend the Agile 2012 conference, so those that did brought back some knowledge to share:
    Jim shared about the "Pitfalls in Agile Testing" session he attended.
    Susan talked about insights from Esther Derby's session on communicating at scale.
    Sandi related insights from Mike Griffith's session on risk management.
    Maria had insights from four sessions; a session by Lyssa Adkins and Michael Spayd, the WikiSpeed Keynote, and sessions on Collaboration and Sustainability on Agile teams.
    Derek spoke about Bob Sutton's keynote on scaling excellence.
    Michael shared about insights from Jeff "Cheezy" Morgan's session on quality assurance being a team sport.

    Lots of engagement tonight. There were great questions and a lot of ideas that individuals could explore and build upon.
    Links to the referenced presentations will be posted shortly.

    Really very informative and at times very funny... Best agile meetup yet as covered many topics of interest and allowed several participants to share in rapid succession.

    We've got at least three or four people willing to share. I'll connect with those folks via e-mail to start with. We'd be happy to have additional attendees share.

    Great conference. I would be happy to discuss agile program & portfolio management as well. I may have a travel conflict next week but should know soon. I can host a planning call any night but Thursday.

    Now that the conferences are ending, who is willing to commit to sharing at the August Meetup? We can figure out how to organize it once we have a feel for how much content there is to share.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
