Agile Edmonton is a User Group run by volunteers with the goal of helping Edmonton develop better software using Agile methods. Unsure what Agile methods are? You’ve come to the right place. Wikipedia defines Agile software development as “a group of software development methodologies based on iterative development, where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing cross-functional teams.” If that still confuses you, then bring your questions to our next meeting or to our slack channel. https://join.slack.com/t/agileedmonton/shared_invite/enQtMjc1NDA4MjAyMzQwLTVhMThmYzNlNWY4MTRmNzUzN2Q2ZjRhMmUwYmM5MTQ1YzE4MjBhMTU3MTY5MDg2OWMzNjQ0MmZmZGI3ZTJiOTc Lean Coffee is a structured, but agenda-less meeting. Participants gather, build an agenda, and begin talking. Conversations are directed and productive because the agenda for the meeting was democratically generated. There are currently dozens of Lean Coffees happening world-wide. For more information see http://leancoffee.org/

Without any automation, dev ops can add unnecessary work to a small development team, and decrease uptime. Jeff Hudson will be speaking about how to automate dev ops in the context of a start up or small team, and how to strike a balance between dev ops automation and over-automation. We'll touch on CI, infrastructure as code and keeping infrastructure under source control, deployment, and logs and metrics.
