Canceled - DFW Scrum: January Featuring Martin Fowler of ThoughtWorks

  • No location was chosen

  • DFW Scrum is honored to host Martin Fowler of ThoughtWorks for our January MeetUp. As you know, each quarter, we strive to host an industry leading expert to help us expand upon our knowledge and learning throughout the year.

    Our speaker of choice for January sends a clear message to the Developer community on the skills and practices necessary for Developers who are engaged in Scrum/Agile processes. DFW Scrum caters to all roles (Product Owners, Scrum Masters, Developers, Executives, Managers, Stakeholders, etc...) involved in the Scrum process and our goal is reaching out to attract the Developers who are a key component to the success of Scrum implementations.

    Scrum certainly excels at managing the logistics of projects as well as providing the self-organizing structure that makes Scrum successful, however, it does not necessarily prescribe an engineering practice that focuses on quality/craftsmanship; it simply says that you MUST have one that delivers the quality that Scrum demands. We hosted Ron Jeffries in July to broach such a topic on Technical Excellence and now we carry that message forward to kick-off 2010.

    More details to follow on venue/location. We are reaching out to many professional groups who wish to hear Martin speak. We know his knowledge is not limited to Scrum/Agile and welcome Martin to help improve the Software Development communities of DFW and surrounding areas.

    If you are interested in assisting with sponsorship or have any questions about this event, feel free to contact Lance Dacy ([masked]).

    It is with great regret that I must inform you that due to a family emergency that occurred this week for Martin, he will not be able to attend any events (including DFW Scrum) planned next week in Dallas. I am working with him next week to re-schedule as soon as possible and will update this site when we lock in his next available date. Thank you for your patience and understanding as Martin takes the time he needs to be with his family.

    I am still waiting to hear from Microsoft (which is my preference), but if we don't have it at Microsoft, we will have it at our Fellowship Technologies location in Irving (just down the road). I will make the final decision today.

    Do we know for sure it's at the Microsoft Campus? Lance? Gary?
