What we're about

Welcome to DFW Scrum!
Scrum is a process framework that focuses on delivering the highest business value to the customer as early as possible through short iterative development cycles that allow rapid and repeated inspection of the done work that the team produces. Scrum can of course be used on just about any project (if it involves people and it has to get done, you can use Scrum).
Our goal is to help you do better today than you were doing yesterday. The best way to do that is through the collective wisdom and experience of the crowd (sprinkled with some industry experts).
Scrum is very simple to understand, but very hard to implement as it takes your problems and throws them in your face each and every day. We consider ourselves an organic group that is designed to tackle the challenges and issues you face regardless of your role in Scrum.
We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month and would love to have you join us. We have hosted some of the industry leading experts such as  Ken Schwaber, Martin Fowler, Kent Beck, Ward Cunningham, Jez Humble, Lisa Crispin, Jim Highsmith, Dave Thomas, Ron Jeffries & Chet Hendrickson, Alistair Cockburn, Jeff Patton, Mary Poppendieck, Esther Derby and Mike Cohn since our inception January 13, 2009.

October Lightning Talks

Needs a location

The theme for this years October Lightning Talks is:
Back to our Roots!
The topics are going to be the accountabilities, events, artifacts and their commitments in Scrum.
We are looking for first time speakers from the community or those of you who would like to practice teaching a great group of folks about one of the elements of Scrum in a 5 - 7 minute talk.

Tim Dickey is going to be hosting the event this month. If you are interested in presenting a lightning talk please reach out to Tim at [masked] to see which topics are still available. This is a great opportunity to practice your speaking and presenting skills with the awesome and supportive folks in our community!
