Hi, all -

We'll be having a special Thursday edition of the Scrum Meetup this month. James Grenning will be in town on August 15th, and he has agreed to come and speak. 

The topic is TBD, but James is a guy worth hearing regardless of the topic. He's an author of the agile manifesto, a book author, and is a

frequent keynote speaker at major conferences. Follow him on twitter https://twitter.com/jwgrenning or check out his blog 


**Please note: we will be in our usual building, but a different room. We will be in conference room #20F.**

    Title: Technical Excellence

    Technical excellence is more than two week sprints, a burn down chart and a daily stand up. The basic rules of Agile or Scrum is not an end in itself, but rather staring point based upon principles and practices that allow and encourage teams to adopt, adapt, and refine their craft. Technical excellence requires focus. Focus on the customer; focus on discovering and avoiding wasteful activities; focus on code quality. It means continually learning; it means working as a team; it means being realistic about what is possible. We’ll look at why technical excellence is critical and what each of us can do to strive for technical excellence.
