To all the girls and women working in the IT community as agile practitioners, this group is for you. We define agile practitioner as Scrum Master, Agile Project Manager, Agile Business analysts, Software developers, Testers, Product Owner, Agile coach, Agile trainer, any one supporting an agile team or any agile enthusiast. We don’t discriminate when it comes to the agile methodology you use, to the contrary we want to learn more about your experience in Scrum, Extreme Programming (XP), Feature Driven Development (FDD), Lean Software Development, Agile Unified Process (Agile UP or AUP), Crystal, Dynamic Systems Development Method (DSDM), etc
We will be meeting on a monthly basis to discuss about selected topics and share our respective experience in Agile frameworks. We welcome suggestions about meetup locations, female speakers, discussion topics, events, etc.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
