QVSTSUG August 2008 Meeting

Scrum:  It's all about Visibility, Honesty, Communication and Self Organisation.

Session Abstract:

Scrum is a software development framework based on Agile concepts and practices. It concentrates on Visibility and Honesty and has a distinct lack of "Command and Control".

This session introduces some of the key concepts of Scrum.  We will start by looking at what Scrum is, some of its key artefacts and processes and then look at how we can automate some of this using Conchango's Scrum for Team System.
