What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in topics relating to Agile software development, Scaling Agile, Distributed Agile, Kanban, Lean Management, Scrum Masters, Product Owners, etc. All experience levels are welcome. We started this group so that Agilists around the world would have a home to meet online and discuss all things Agile. This is an opportunity to get together with fellow Agilists and hear from field experts about challenges, solutions, trends, or anything else that can benefit the Agile community.

This Meetup started as the Broward Lean Cofee Meetup and expanded to host online meetups. When indicated, a meetup might be hosted in a different language, such as Spanish, in order to accommodate other Agilist groups.
