Agile Winnipeg User Group is alive!

I was fortunate enough to attend the Inaugural Agile Winnipeg User Group meeting last week and the presentation given by Steve Rogalsky and Doug Kok was awesome. Over 60 people came out from a multitude of companies throughout the city as well. It was a nice surprise to see how many people are interested in Agile.

For those of you that could not attend, here is the link to the site. It has the presentation slides and a link to sign up for future meetings as well.

The presentation doesn’t have any information on the ball point game though. If you want details on the game itself, please check out Boris Gloger’s Blog.

I’d love to see more attendees at the next session. Let us see if we can make Winnipeg an Agile leader like Vancouver!
