Marco Mulder and Serge Beaumont will host the third (!) nlscrum meetup. I'm looking forward to an evening of interesting stories and good tips. It will be an opportunity for Scrum users of all experience levels to learn about and share experiences with Scrum. The meetup will start with a presentation by agile consultant Cesario Ramos, who used Scrum to get a a big project on track that had already failed twice. After that, there will be Open Space sessions where you can discuss topics with experts and peers in a small group setting. Join the nlscrum community in this learning environment! The meetup starts at 16:00 and ends at 21:00. Free dinner is included!

    Good presentation with lively interaction, and insightful discussions in OpenSpace

    Learned new paths to get architecture into scrum, it was fun and real 'open'.

    The presentation and openspace organization was good.

    It was well organized. Not formal, but flexible. Spent my time very effectively. Had a great time.

    The challenging topic of how to do architecture in an agile way attracted many interested attendees, including me. The discussions triggered me into writing this blog post:­]

    Good presentation although bit of an anti-climax ;-)
    Goood discussions, good food :-)

    Learned that pre-scrum/pre-sprint activities are no issue for the attendees due to the pretty 'generic nature' of scrum. Issue was common understanding about 'architecture' and 'architects'.
    Very nice to meet so many people. It amaze me (again) that so few female participants attend. Can we have more diversity?

    Instead of 46, the # of attendees was 30+ people.

    It was good for finding out what issues other teams/companies are having and that we are not doing so bad ourselves. l thought everyone was very open and very frank and willing to discuss their situations and to ask questions of others.

    Presentation was great, almost a schoolbook example of how Scrum saves a failing project.
    Discussions this time were a lot about 'how to start with scrum', which is always a good topic, because it can be pretty difficult.

    The group is getting larger, way cool! Had some interesting discussions, as always. Never ceases to amaze me how a simple meeting of minds can lead to cool new ideas...

    I liked the combination of an intresting interactive presentation and open space session.

    Hey Serge, since you explained what bootstrapping is (creating a selfsustaining proces that proceeds without external help), how can a howto to the scrum proces be a 'bootstrap'? Or is it you're offering your help to help ourselves? That would be very nice and interesting.
    Because Soemirno and Remon would like to explore/discuss pre (?) scrum activities too, I will prepare something that can kickstart (not bootstrap) an open space session ;)

    Serge, I would like to second Mary's suggestion.

  • Serge B.

    Seeing two people seconding Mary's suggestion, I'm cool with that as a theme. How about this theme: "How to bootstrap the Scrum process?".

    Rob, by all means take your ideas with you to the OpenSpace. In the OpenSpace format the agenda is decided on the start of the OpenSpace, and determined by the participants.

    My ideas for subjects I would like to discuss:
    - ways to incorporate code and architecture reviews in an iteration
    - what is a good userstory, and how to create one
    - how to scale Scrum down to small teams, e.g. teamsize < 3
