December Meeting - Lisa Crispin - Agile Development on Distributed Teams

Agile Development on Distributed Teams 

The combination of agile becoming mainstream and distributed teams becoming more common in software development means we need to be creative in following agile values, principles and practices with non-co-located agile teams. Lisa Crispin will review the different flavors of distributed teams, and what we can do to promote a culture that lets this work.  We can even find ways to leverage some advantages of distributed teams. Following a short presentation, participants will work in groups to brainstorm more ways to help distributed agile teams succeed.


Lisa Crispin is the co-author, with Janet Gregory, of Agile Testing: A Practical Guide for Testers and Agile Teams (Addison-Wesley, 2009), co-author with Tip House of Extreme Testing (Addison-Wesley, 2002), and a contributor to Experiences of Test Automation by Dorothy Graham and Mark Fewster (Addison-Wesley, 2011) and Beautiful Testing (O’Reilly, 2009). She has worked as a tester on agile teams for the past ten years, and enjoys sharing her experiences via writing, presenting, teaching and participating in agile testing communities around the world. Lisa was named one of the 13 Women of Influence in testing by Software Test & Performance magazine. For more about Lisa’s work, visit @lisacrispin on Twitter,

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
