Panel Discussion “What parts of "Agile" are really working?

Date of Event: 
Thursday, October 6, 2016 - 5:30pm

Trying to adopt agile principles for your software development team? Trying to scale agile beyond the small successful pilot team? This month's meeting is a panel discussion of what works and what doesn't work for organizations using agile development methodologies. This isn't a theoretical talk -- it's what works by the people who made it work, helped teams be successful, and earned a few scratches in the process.


Directions can be found on the map of the Electrical Engineering/Computer Science Building.
