Scrum Club is being treated to a free awareness night (because we are a user group with a charitable mission)... I'm trying to figure out if there are any blackout dates for either Feb 9 or 10 because that's when the folks behind it are available... They look ok... Twiistup isn't until the 12th and there are only user group meetings, no other fancy events... Would we get smacked by a Twiistup pre-party if we did something that week? I'm looking at Techvenue and Garysguide.... I don't see anything.
Totally clueless here, any advice would help. I'd hate to have them go to a lot of trouble and then have crickets in the audience, you know? It is a different crowd than the startup scene-- more like mid-size companies with significant dev teams...
Have you wanted your volunteer hours to count on your resume? Are you an IT professional and want to get involved in Agile Software Development and Scrum methodologies? Are you currently participating and want to augment and refresh your skills? Would you like to become a Certified Scrum Master? Are you certified and want to evangelize?
If you answered yes to any of these questions then join our group. We hold monthly networking meetings and run volunteer scrum projects online.
Most people have a hard time learning Scrum even if they are professionally trained and certified because we forget 60% of what we learn in a class the next day. Our online scrums complete an actual project chosen by the team for the benefit of a deserving non-profit organization. Your participation, your role(s), and your accomplishments will be verifiably documented and available to use as credentials. The simulations will introduce Scrum rules, guidelines, and methodologies to some and refresh them for others, enabling the team to be more cohesive and move faster.
