    Really enjoyed this Meetup! This was my first time doing the Agile Lego game, and it was a neat way to illustrate Agile development challenges independent of industry and programming language.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
