DFW Scrum December Holiday Party!
It's an instant classic! This month we decided to take a break from filling our heads and fill our stockings instead! Join us for the first ever annual DFW Scrum Holiday Party. Here's the plan: Bring your favorite treat to share and come dressed up in your favorite ugly Christmas sweater...or not. If you'd rather not dress up, no problem. If you'd rather come in a Santa costume or as an elf, go for it! Just bring a treat (cookies, candy, desserts, etc) to share with the group. The main event for the night will be a WHITE ELEPHANT GIFT EXCHANGE. Bring a wrapped gift of NO MORE THAN $10 (can be less as well) if you want to participate. If you bring a gift, you will leave with one! We will take turns opening the presents and you will even have the chance to steal from others if you choose. Gifts can be funny or serious. They must have some value though so don't wrap up a leaf or a rock from your yard. Purchase something you think would be fun to give to someone else in our group. Find something really funny or see how far you can stretch $10 or less. Bring your friends and get to know others in our community. Join us as we take a break from burndowns, backlogs, and business value and turn our attention to pizza, presents, and pie. Hope to see you there!

What we're about

Welcome to DFW Scrum!

Scrum (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scrum_(development)) 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 project. 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 reserving the quarters for industry thought leaders / mentors who can provide direction and insight to questions we might have raised in past meetings. 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.
