A reminder that the next Agile/XP SoCal monthly meeting is *next* Wednesday, 2/18 at 6:00 PM.

Please be sure to RSVP to so we can have your visitor badge ready and enough food for everyone.


This month we continue our series focusing on core agile by exploring the framework and practices that make agile processes work.

Agile Project Execution

This talk will provide you with a practical guide to Agile software development projects. We'll focus on the Agile software development lifecycle, the necessary practices, and tips to create highly productive Agile teams. Along with a deeper investigation into key process areas, we'll also address frequently encountered concerns and issues such as the different roles on Agile projects and how they relate to traditional project roles. There will also be a comparison
of Agile and Waterfall projects and how the Agile process focuses on meeting specific product and project objectives.
