December 5th: Packing for an Agile Software Release: A Hiker's Guide

Presented by Dawn Hemminger

Intimidated by planning an Agile software release for your team? Don't be! Rest easy and use the same steps I use when planning for a release. Think of it like planning for a hiking adventure with friends! We will ORGANIZE our gear, SCHEDULE our trip, PLAN for the future by learning from our history, PACK our bags, and GO! Then we'll SHARE our own personal experiences, as I hope to learn from you! So whether you're a novice or a pro, you'll gain tips and techniques to plan your next Agile software release. Let's share in this adventure together.
