I want to thank you for attending "Getting things done: Practical Agile" with Dan Podsedly. The event started with a 1 hour Job Fair, with approximately 300 members searching and recruiting for jobs. Over 50 boxes of pizza were devoured, and many of you scored interviews while socializing and making connections.
Agile Secrets Revealed:
Dan Podsedly gave perhaps one of the most inspirational talks I'd ever seen on the Agile process. Pairing and TDD seemed to be a pivotal moment for many, as I kept watching the tweets roll in. I don't think anyone walked away without an interest in moving their teams to this approach. Dan did a great job of explaining the principals, and took many questions from the audience.
After the presentation, Dan joined us at the bar for a huge celebration as Boston PHP reached a major milestone of over 2,000 members. What better way to celebrate, than to grab free drinks and appetizers courtesy of Pivotal Labs. We had our largest turnout ever at the bar with over 70 people.
I'd like to thank Dan Podseldy and Pivotal Labs for coming to Boston PHP and presenting this important topic. I think Dan was quite impressed with Boston PHP and the huge turnout. Noting our monthly attendance seems to rivals that of many all day tech conferences in CA. Dan was particularly impressed with Boston itself, saying he had no idea how much tech was here, and that perhaps he should open an office in Boston.
Again, thank you for attending our event, and for a great celebration.
We are thinking of doing a 1/2 long Agile workshop. More hands-on, and training style. Wonder if you would attend? Let us know by going here: http://www.meetup.com/bostonphp/events/16235767
