Bay Area Software Testers was originally created with 1 rule: It won't always be Curtis, Michael, or Josh speaking. Unfortunately, for the most part we've violated that rule. It's time for that change.
Join us for our quarterly "Lean Beer" BAST events. What is Lean Beer you ask? Well, it's identical to Lean Coffee, but we used beer (or water) and it happens in the evening instead of the mornings! Okay, smart ass answer aside, here is an excerpt from the leancoffee.org website:
"Lean Coffee is a structured, but agenda-less meeting. Participants gather, build an agenda, and begin talking. Conversations are directed and productive because the agenda for the meeting was democratically generated."
The basic idea is we talk about what the majority of the people present want to talk about. There is no central speaker and no central topic. Come prepared to talk about what matters to you!
We are also planning on using these events to help get an idea of what people are interested in and trying to find experts to come and speak on those topics. So come, discuss, and have fun.
Light snacks and beer will be provided.
Logistics Note: Please RSVP with your real name as we will be generating a list of attendees and if you aren't on the list security won't let you into the building.
