    To all visiting Carnival for the first time, give yourself enough time to get to Carnival as Doral after 5:00 pm weekdays has heavy traffic, so you want to be in the Doral area by latest 5:30 pm, so we could start the event timely at 6:00 pm sharp to be fair to everyone. See you all tomorrow :)

  • Deema D.

    Folks make sure you attend in person, we will not be using Go To Meeting or other virtual collab tools. This is a working session, with a great presentation and exercises planned.

    1 · January 31, 2014

  • Tony Di P.

    Hi all, looking forward to Monday's event, reminder for those visiting Carnival for the first time, please use entrance on NW 87th Avenue which is located between NW 33rd Street and NW 36th Street. Thank you for your interest and support and see you Monday @ 6:00 PM.

    The excitement is building for this amazing workshop! The topic and presenters are generating huge interest in our community. We are now at capacity with a few on the waiting list. Please update your Meetup status if your plans change as a courtesy to fellow agilists on the wait list. See you next week!

    What a great event we are going to have, already 80 RSVPs. Remember to arrive early to meet other Agilists and to enjoy the food and refreshments our sponsor Rally Software will offer, thanks so much Rally for stepping-up for this event!! See you all next week.

    Breaking news! Mark Kilby from Leading Agile will be joining this session as a co-presenter. We had the pleasure to meet Mark in our Higher Performing Teams conference last October, where he delivered an engaging session on Teams and Conflict. Between our two out of town guests Thom and Mark, you cannot afford to miss this :)
