Calling all Hackers

Hi everyone,

I'm so glad I got the chance to meet some of you at the Town Hall the other week. I'm really excited to be partnering with Hacker Union and absolutely can't say enough great things about everyone I meet.

I want to tell you about a training course coming to NYC that's right up our alley. If you love tinkering on code and want an intense course full of meaty material, check out Art of Agile

It's very different from other courses you may have taken.  At one point in the course participants split into teams and deliver working software in 90-minute iterations, putting into practice the techniques the course teaches. The course imparts in a very practical way how to help a team achieve predictable, productive velocity: How to plan at the iteration level, make commitments, and manage technical debt.

If you're interested in blasting out working code in 90 minutes, and getting up to speed on Agile then this is the place to do it. The course is taught by the folks that literally wrote the book on this stuff - James Shore, author of The Art of Agile Development and Diana Larsen, author of Agile Retrospectives and Liftoff.  (The course is actually two courses that can be taken individually or together.)

The site is:

And, I was able to hook Hacker Union up with a special discount off the course.  Save $500 per ticket, pretty cool. Use HACKER500 for the Full Immersion ticket.

Hope to see you soon.
