This is a group for truly agile Dev Managers who work in the Melbourne software development industry. It is an unassuming forum for us to come together over beer, share our experience and woes.
While there are many groups for general Agile practice, for BAs and PMs, there isn't one that offers the kind of focus on subjects that would appeal to our breed of Dev Manager -- specifically the development practices, technical capabilities (such as continuous delivery) that enable us to make better software and how enable the organisational change that leads us to them.
We'll be trying to avoid frontal presentation, instead we will share our knowledge over beer or around a dinner table. Discussions deal with issues from the political to the technical and how we overcome them to deliver working software for our respective businesses.
