Distributed and large scale development are a fact of life for many teams. Unfortunately most agile methodologies or approaches assume that the team is located in a single team room. Until recently there has been little guidance about how to apply these approaches with a geographically dispersed or very large teams.
Ade Miller has been following an agile, distributed development approach for the past several years. During this time his teams within Microsoft have experimented extensively with different approaches to best address the challenges of distributed agile development and using agile on larger teams.
This meetup will address the challenges faced by large and geographically distributed agile teams and details some proven practices to address these issues and build successful distributed teams.
Definitely looking forward to this one! Great chance to talk to people outside of Redmond about how they do agile.
