Scrum in the Real World

Further Update[masked]: We now have a location

With thanks to Christian, we now have a place to get together for our chat. It sounds like an interesting place too with it being an Old Fire Station.


Topics: Using Scrum and Developed Best-Practices

Torsten has kindly agreed to host a discussion around using the Agile methodology Scrum and give insight into how in practice some tweaks and changes to optimise have been made over time. This will be an interactive discussion and not a presentation so come with plenty of curiosity and armed with any questions.

There is still potential for additional topics for this meetup also. Please contact me if you have a topic that you would like to suggest or you can simply start a discussion within the group here on meetup. In the event that we have several topics, I'll start a poll and we can take a vote on it.


Schedule

I'm anticipating that as it is the festive time of year, we can meet for about an hour and then head out for some general networking at a Christmas market over a Glühwein or a beer at a local pub.


Location

As seen above, we'll be meeting at Christian's office in the Old Fire Station.

    I liked the discussions and the beer. Thanks to all of you.

    P.S: I won't click "Schön dich zu sehen". Ever. I find this an annoying feature :-/

      ...but it was nice to see you ;-)

    Thanks again to Thorsten for hosting the discussion and Christian for hosting us in his unique office.

    I'll consolidate the survey questions and get back to you about a date and potential topics for the next meetup.

    In the meantime, have a great Christmas and New Year!

    Ok. One last update before seeing you in a little while. I would normally offer my phone number if any of you get lost or need help finding the place. However, I broke it last week and it is being repaired.

    Therefore, if you're stuck, post a message here and I will hopefully be online to see it or one of the other attendees will.

    See you soon,

    Dan

    Hi, I might be up to half an hour late since I am for work in Darmstadt before. I'm not sure if I can leave there in time. Sorry in advance.

    December 18, 2013

    • Danny B.

      No problem Florian. We may go for a Christmas beer afterwards so join us at any time you can.

  • Mirko K.

    Unfortunately, I won't make it to the meetup tomorrow. We have our company christmas party at the same evening...

    December 17, 2013

    • Danny B.

      I agree with Thorsten ;-)

    Hi all,

    I'm having difficulties in obtaining a good enough location for us to meet up.

    Would anyone have any suggestions of somewhere where we can at least have a focused hour of discussions before we can head somewhere else for beers and general "networking".

    I don't want to choose any pub or cafe because of the noise but somewhere central would also be good.

    Regards,

    Dan

  • Johannes

    Yes, I think I can make it on Dec 18.

    @johannes - as promised not a Tuesday but does a Wednesday work? Thought it would be good to meet up before Christmas and we could end the evening over a Glühwein.

    November 22, 2013

  • Danny B.

    Hi all, I've been a little slow in putting a candidate for the next meetup in the schedule. I'm off to Jordan for a week now and shall organise a location and provide options for the topic when I return although Thorsten's overview of agile processes in reality seemed to capture many people's attention. Feel free to submit ideas in the discussion here and I'll formalise a poll on my return.
