The Garden State Scrum User Group meets monthly to talk about Scrum, to share experiences, to network, and to provide support for local Scrum practitioners.
For the 3rd GSSUG monthly gathering, we had a small group attending the event. E&Y was kind enough to lend their conference room for our meeting once again last month. Big Thanks to Eugene Belkin for helping us get this facility.
We had the following agenda for our meeting:
1) How is Agile Scrum applied to your specific organization and challenges
2) Problems with team members
3) Real Life Scrum Patterns (Problems – Solutions)
4) How Scrum gets started at organizations
However, due to popular demand, we focused on the first topic which consumed the entire session. We had a very healthy discussion led and managed by our Agile Coach Nitin Khanna. The discussion focused on the value of Scrum, where it can be applied and comparison with Waterfall and how Agile Scrum differentiates itself.
We are still working on the logistics for the next monthly gathering of GSSUG. The venue would be either Jersey City (near a PATH train station) or near Newark Penn Station. This would help Scrum enthusiasts from NYC, South Jersey and North Jersey to attend the meeting. We will announce the date and location soon.
