October Meeting: "Agile Narrative" by Nick McKenna, Wednesday, 8th, 7pm for 7:30pm

As usual, on the second Wednesday at Victoria Hotel Pub, we are meeting to hear talk by Nick McKenna which will be on Agile Narrative. Nick as a Certified Scrum Practitioner in his last job has been responsible for turning team to Agile and introducing all the processes that come with it. Nick was kind enough to share his experience with the XP Club goers and we are very happy to see him presenting. Apart from talking about zero bugs policies and other clever things, Nick will also happily engage in the conversation about karate and diving.

Drinks and snacks thanks to our sponsors are free.

We will also draw one free personal license for any of the products by JetBrains - our new sponsor.

Next Meeting is a double bill: Code Quality and Scala + Lift

So here comes the agenda for our next meeting(usual time and place):

1. 'Code Quality Focus Exercise' based on the last meeting of the ThoughtWorks' GeekNight presented by myself. It is a quick and simple, yet powerful, group exercise, that brings quite a lot of visibility of what software quality is about and how it is context dependent. On the same day I will facilitate the same exercise at my workplace so after doing it at the club's meeting we should have interesting discussion comparing those two groups.

2. 'Scala + Lift in context of club's website revamp' presented by David Turner of William Hill. David is an experienced programmer, project manager, agile coach and generally man of many talents. As he is the only one so far taking the work on the club's website seriously, he will be the best presenter for this matter.

As usual drinks and snacks thanks to our sponsors are free.

Also we will draw one free personal license for any of the products by JetBrains - our new sponsor.

See you there!
