Tonight is about mingling, getting to know each other better, breaking down barriers, building relationships, growing trust. Why?
To have a growing group of people, who wouldn’t normally interact,
coming together to support each other in exploring better ways of
working and using The Heart of Agile as a common theme.
From the Agile Manifesto... "We are uncovering better ways ... and helping others do it" and the top value is "Individuals and interactions" - it's all about people, specifically people working together and helping each other. A community.
But what makes a great community? A community is:
“The condition of sharing or having certain attitudes and interests in common” - Heart of Agile, learning from and helping others.
“A group of people who will help you through difficult times and
celebrate with you in happy times. It is a group of people who have
a commitment to you and who are there when you need them” - we're getting there.
I believe that food, drinks and a comfortable, relaxed social setting will help.
