I want to organise a local Scrum User Group that meets regularly to discuss Scrum and share experiences. This week I attended the Wessex Scrum User Group near Southampton to get an idea of what might be involved. Since training with Nigel Baker of Agile Bear in February I haven’t spoken to other ScrumMasters so this was a really useful opportunity. I picked up a lot of useful tips and also felt reassured about my understanding and implementation of Scrum.
I’ve started to make a few contacts in the area to find other Scrum users and if possible run a meeting in late November. I am also wondering if it’s better to have a wider focus covering XP and agile development in general? At the moment the attendees are myself and a colleague, my first thought for a location is the Raven. If we get some interest (at least one other person!) I’ll set a date for the first meeting.
I’ve created a LinkedIn group so if you are interested please join or leave a comment on this post.
