Bath Scrum User Group

by Andrew on October 29, 2009

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.

Hi Andrew – I pleased that you are setting up this group and will try and support you the best I can.

I coach a number of teams in Bath (Amdocs) and also know of some folks in HelpHire (if they are this there!) – I’m sure we can get a small group together for a meetup.

If you organise a meeting (especially around beer and chicken) I would attend (I’m usually in Bath 2 – 3 days a week, Mon -Wednesday).

Lets keep in touch around this and see what we can do :)

cheers
Mike

Hi Andrew and Mike,

Mike – Didn’t realise you had strong Bath connections? I lived in Bath until last year and know a few Agilistas there. I’ll get em to join the Linkedin group you set up Andrew.

Cheers,
Eben

Hi Mike & Eben,

Thanks for spreading the word. I’m glad there has been a good level of interest already. I’m starting to think about locations and dates, I’ll post some suggestions on LinkedIn.

Thanks, Andrew
