This is a group for anyone interested in agile software development in the Leicester area, where we plan to regularly meet up, share knowledge, experiences and have fun while doing it!
The aim is to hold an event on the 2nd Thursday of each month, which will be in the form of presentations/workshops from industry professionals working within agile software development to share knowledge, promote best practice and network with others within the industry.
If you have any topics in particular you are interested in, or you'd like to speak or know someone that might please get in touch - we are always open to feedback!
Join us for our Feb meetup where we will have a series of lightning talks (small 20 minute talks) from different people on all things Agile! As always there will be an opportunity to ask questions, learn something and have a chat over some pizza 🍕!
