Next month, on August 13th, I’m going to be speaking at the Agile Tampa meeting on “XP and Scrum: Tools and Practices for Making your Organization Agile”. It’s a long title (as anyone who has paired with me will know, I like long method names to describe behavior), but it will cover some very important information.
As organizations begin to investigate and implement agile methods, they quickly find themselves trying to understand what is out there, and what tools can help them manage the process. By tools, I’m not necessarily referring to things like VersionOne or Rally’s tools. I mean things like CRC cards, index cards, user stories, customer tests, developer tests, etc.
During this talk, I’m going to be first comparing and contrasting Scrum and XP (and likely Lean as well, since that has been a hot topic lately), and then diving into various practices and tools designed to help get things rolling on your teams.
If you’d like to come, be sure to get the info from the post on the AgileTampa site. NOTE: This is being held at the *NEW* Microsoft office in Tampa – they aren’t in their old location anymore.
Hope to see you there!
