Let's wine, dine, and talk Agile!

Calling all Agilists... new and experienced!

Whether you call it Lean, Agile, Scrum, XP, Kanban, Scrumban, or any number of other names, many of us have discovered a new way of developing software (and other valuable endeavors) that can dramatically improve our productivity and our joy at work.

Why a potluck? Why not something "easier" to attend like Lean Coffee? 

Because attending Lean Coffee is too "easy." You can forge a deeper connection with someone when you've invested more in meeting them (just ask anyone who goes to Burning Man...).

I have a home in the Dogpatch that seats 8-10 for dinner. I'd like to open it up to a diverse group of passionate Agilists for socializing, networking, and thoughtful problem solving over dinner and a glass of wine (or whiskey).

I am a Paleo chef. I will likely sous-vide a protein (e.g., beef, chicken, fish, etc.) to build a meal around. There will probably be leftovers to take home. 

Please spread the word and help us grow! This is a new Meetup, so I hope it will continue to expand into other homes and forums. In the meantime, we'll inspect and adapt. If you'd like to volunteer your home, please send me a message.

Note: I have a very well-behaved pit bull named Ika. She is a total sweetheart. If you have a fear of dogs I can put her away for the dinner, but the only help I can provide for allergies is a dose of Claritin. She doesn't shed much... :3

Thanks for reading and I hope to see you soon!

    Chris, what was the link for the short quiz that we talked about tonight? I thought I could remember it, but that turned out to not be true...

    Hope you feel better, Dan. Heads up: the roti has bacon on the outside but there will be plenty of non-bacon infused chicken on the inside if desired. I can get an alternative for anyone who would prefer it.

    I'm not feeling so great today... don't want to infect the group with germs. Bummed to miss this one.

    Hi Chris,
    Can't make this one - still recovering from leg surgery. Hope to make the next one,
    Cheers

    Hi All,

    I was thinking about making some banana bread muffins. They usually are pretty sweet, so they can almost be a desert item or side. Also, if anyone is allergic to nuts, let me know and I'll leave them out. Otherwise I usually put walnuts in them.

    In regards to the topic, I'm fairly new to agile concepts, so I'd prefer to let others pick. Anything would be good for me.

    -David

    Hello everyone!

    The inaugural SF Agile Potluck was a real hit. I'm super looking forward to meeting you tomorrow! I think we'll have an excellent time.

    I will be cooking sous vide chicken... either a roti or legs and thighs with BBQ sauce. Please let others know what you'll be bringing so we can plan accordingly.

    At our last potluck, they suggested that we choose a topic. What do you think about "How do we influence executive leaders to learn about and adopt Agile principles?"

    -Chris
