In this session, Todd will cover the basics and origins of Agile and Scrum and how the two relate. He will examine why any organization would want to do Scrum in the first place, what the benefits are and some of the challenges to expect when beginning with Scrum. He will go over the basics of the framework, how it works, and some of the common pitfalls organizations run into when they're just getting started with Scrum. He will also have some time for Q&A to answer any particular questions you may have.

Code of Conduct

We want a productive happy community that can welcome new ideas, improve every process every year, and foster collaboration between individuals with differing needs, interests and skills.

We gain strength from diversity, and actively seek participation from those who enhance it. This code of conduct exists to ensure that diverse groups collaborate to mutual advantage and enjoyment. We will challenge prejudice that could jeopardize the participation of any person in the community.

The Code of Conduct governs how we behave in public or in private whenever the Linux community will be judged by our actions. We expect it to be honored by everyone who represents the community officially or informally, claims affiliation, or participates directly. It applies to activities online or offline.

We invite anybody to participate. Our community is open.

We encourage you to read the complete Code of Conduct before attending the meeting.
