James Grenning joined the DC Lean + Agile Meetup on Wednesday, February 14th at 12pm ET.


Agile is more than two week sprints, a burn-down chart and a daily stand-up meeting. The basic rules of Agile or Scrum are not an end in themselves, but a starting point based upon principles and practices that allow and encourage teams to adopt, adapt, and refine their craft. Unfortunately, it may seem to the technical people that agile is just another micro-management approach.

Whether you are a manager, scrum master or engineer, you need to know why and how the technical practices of test-driven development, refactoring, continuous design, clean code and automated testing can help you and your organization be great.

This talk will cut through the mystery and show why we should all strive for Technical Excellence.
