NYC Agile Firestarter – November 13th, 2010

Agile_Firestarter_Logo Do to popular demand, the Agile Firestarter is coming back to NYC again!

Are you just starting out with Agile, XP or Scrum and need to get up to speed? Or do you know a thing or two about Agile but want to learn the basics so you can implement it in your organization?

Then this Firestarter is for you. We’ll take you from 0 to 60 in 8 hours. Bring a laptop with Visual Studio 2008 Express edition or better for an all day hands on seminar led by some of the New York area’s Agile practitioners.

Also note that there will be a follow on event for Agile Firestarter attendees on January 22, 2011. Stay tuned for more info in the coming weeks.

Special Note:   This event is a repeat presentation of the content from prior NYC and Northern-NJ-Area Agile Firestarter events.

If you have attended one of those prior deliveries of this content, please don't RSVP for this one as well. Instead make room for someone else who hasn't been able to attend past deliveries of this content!
