Scrum @ JUG-Ka

The upcoming talk at the Java User Group Karlsruhe this Wednesday is kind of an experiment. It features Scrum, which according to Wikipedia:

... is an iterative incremental framework for managing complex work (such as new product development) commonly used with agile software development.

It's an experiment, because we usually feature sessions on development topics like REST, Hibernate and Flex. A talk on a management framework, although it's closely related to development, is rather unusual for us. If you are not interested in this kind of topic, let me know, we appreciate your feedback.

The talk will take place at University Karlsruhe in room 102, located in the basement. Unusual topics call for unusual timings, so we'll start at 8:00pm this time. Our speaker is Dr. J├╝rgen Hoffmann of scrumcoach.de.

This month we are giving away a free book called "Growing Object-Oriented Software, Guided by Tests by Freeman&Pryce". If you are interested in participating in the lottery, drop me an email. The winners will be announced at the end of the talk.

This is the last gathering of the year 2009. There's even more to come in 2010, so subscribe to our Google Calendar and stay up-to-date.
