Dear Software Professional,
Herewith an invitation to the 73rd meeting of the Cape Town SPIN, to take place on the 5th floor of the Bandwidth Barn in Cape Town next Wednesday, 16 November 2011.
One of the principles behind the agile manifesto highlights face-to-face conversation as the best method for conveying information within a development team, yet there are times when teams consist partly or entirely of members who are geographically dispersed. While there is currently no true substitute for face-to-face interaction, there are some steps that can and should be taken to improve the quality of dispersed interactions.
In this talk, Philip Anastasiadis will be sharing some of the insights from his research, which includes analysis of some of the recent case studies reported by Jeff Sutherland on hyperproductivity in dispersed Scrums.
Wine kindly sponsored by Yila Consulting.
Wednesday, 16 November 2011, 18h15 Events Room, 5th floor, Bandwidth Barn, 125 Buitengracht Street, Cape Town
