  • Scrum@Scale!
    Agile Delaware is back! Networking starts at 6pm and the presentation starts at 6:30pm This session will provide an overview of Scrum@Scale, a scaling framework designed to help scale Scrum across an entire organization by using a simple, intuitive, and proven framework designed by Jeff Sutherland, co-creator of Scrum. Scrum@Scale is a framework within which networks of Scrum teams can address complex adaptive problems. Teams creatively deliver products of the highest possible value while operating consistently with the Scrum Guide. These “products” may be hardware, software, complex integrated systems, processes, services, etc., depending upon the domain of the Scrum teams. Don MacIntyre, founder of http://www.ScrumEtc.com, was recently invited to by Jeff and ScrumInc to become one of the first certified Scrum@Scale trainers. In addition to providing an overview of Scrum@Scale, Don will share a brief case study of one of his successful transformations where many Scrum@Scale patterns were used.

  • Transitioning from Scrum to Kanban: The 5 Main Dysfunctions
    Joe Scholz and Bob English of Capital One will present. When transitioning from Scrum to Kanban, or any new methodology, there can be a tendency to lose focus on what made you successful in the first place. Over the course of several month, a group at Capital One took their teams from Scrum to Kanban. However, across the teams, five negative patterns were identified that were affecting the teams in different ways. Through inspect and improve principles, solutions for each were identified, and even better, there are ways to avoid these dysfunctions all together. As always, pizza and drinks will be provided and open networking begins at 6pm.

  • Delaware Tech Super Meetup!
    The Super Meetup is a gathering of the most-connected members of the local tech, startup, and entrepreneurial scene. It’s a chance to make new friends and learn more about local tech and entrepreneurial resources and tech-focused meetup groups. The idea of the Super Meetup is simple: meetups are integral to any tech scene. Every now and then, it makes sense to rally the leaders of tech-related meetups in town and gather for one big mixer. The idea is to connect people with groups they may not have otherwise known about. Please RSVP on their MeetUp Site! https://www.meetup.com/Technically-Delaware/events/240060598/

  • Agile Games to Generate Insights
    Vaibhav Gandhi and Mark Dodge will present Agile Games to Generate Insights. With a little creativity and ingenuity, learn how extending simple games can help agile teams explore challenges via a different lens to generate lasting insights and reveal new possibilities for improvement. Playing simple games with agile teams is a great way to have some fun - but it’s also an effective way to a create safe environment for teams to explore difficult challenges, build trust, and strengthen collaboration. But isn’t creating agile games hard to do? Where do I start? We’ll share some game design theory and some tips from our experiences starting with simple games and extending them to create fun game spaces for agile teams to play, explore, and generate lasting insights. We’ll discuss how to spot team dysfunction and share some games to remediate them. We’ll wrap up by facilitating a brief game design session demonstration with the audience to create and enhance a game “on-the-fly”. As always, pizza will be provided and open networking will begin at 6pm.

  • 3 Pillars Approach to Agile Testing Strategy
    Far too often agile adoptions focus just on the development teams, agile frameworks, or technical practices as a part of their adoption strategies. And then there’s the near perpetual focus on tooling or developing test automation without striking a balanced approach. Often the testing activity and the testing teams are “left behind” in agile strategy development or worse yet, they’re simply “along for the ride”. That is not an effective transformation strategy. Join experienced agile coaches Bob Galen and Shaun Bradshaw as they share the Three Pillars framework for establishing a balanced strategic plan for effective quality and testing. The Three Pillars focus on development and test automation, testing practices, and collaboration activities that will ensure you have a balanced approach to agile testing. Specifically, risk-based testing, exploratory testing, paired collaboration around agile requirements, agile test design, and TDD-BDD-Functional testing automation will be explored as tactic within a balanced Three Pillars framework. You will leave with the tools to immediately initiate or re-tool a much more effective and balanced agile testing strategy.
