Agile Immersive Lab with Alistair Cockburn in Chicago

By | Agile, Maria Matarelli, Training | No Comments

Always looking for ways to give back to the community, I coordinated an Agile in Practice Immersive Lab in Chicago with Alistair Cockburn, co-creator of the Agile Manifesto, Aakash Srinivasan, Agile Coach and Trainer from Washington, D.C., and Larry Suda with the Palatine Group in New York, creator of the Agile simulation software program. We brought in members from the Illinois Regional Agile Users Group (IRAUG) and the local Software Development Community (SDC).

We began with an Agile simulation to set the stage and introduce and reinforce the core concepts.
