This month Pat Kua , one of ThoughtWorks top agile coaches, will be presenting The Agile Primer.

Why is everyone talking about agile? What does agile mean? How does it affect me? How is it different from traditional software development? We're going to have a look at the forces that resulted in the agile movement and have a look at the impact this can have on software development. This is an introduction to the values and principles of agile, understanding perhaps some of the ways they manifest into practices.

We'll have some interactive elements in this session, including addressing participant's Hopes and Concerns, and having a go at building the key set of values for Agile Software Development.

The venue requires a list of names in advance so, if you'd like to come along, please register. If you have an upcoming.com username that is recognisable as your real name, you can register by saying "I'm coming" on this page. Otherwise, please fill in this registration form.

We're holding the event in the Atlas suite in the Kilburn building. To find us, walk down the right (south) side of the Kilburn building (to the right of the metal steps) until you reach the goods entrance. The porter at the desk will open the door for you. There will then be signs to the Atlas Suite, which is upstairs. We'd like to thank the University for making their facilities available to us for this event.

Gutted I missed this.
Will there be a repeat?


There are no current plans to have Pat speak again, but we will be having regular events. We're trying to offer a variety of topics so keep an eye on the website http://manchestergeeknights.wetpaint.com/ for future events.
