Agile Project Methodologies (P) - Tue 5/13 7:00 PM

Agile Project Methodologies (P) - Tue 5/13 7:00 PM

When: Tue 5/13 7:00 PM
Where: 1010 Commerce Park Dr., Suite F, Oak Ridge, TN 37830

Sam will be leading us in an Agile Project Methodologies introductory session. The various Agile Project Methodologies have come a long way since the Agile Manifesto was released in 2001, and although they have become the de facto standard for high performing companies in the software world, recently we've seen these problem solving guides begin to explode into unexpected areas such as research, the engineering design process, and even household management and the raising of children.

This, like almost all our Tuesday night sessions, is open to the public.  If you know anyone who has been curious to come out to the space please invite them along!
