A friendly, low-fi, lunchtime, outdoor agile meet-up ... on a bench
Agile on the Bench, the best lunchtime, outdoor agile meetup.
Agile on the bench is as you may expect, on a bench (well on a few benches), outdoors, in a park. The park also has a bandstand in case it rains.
Being in a park means no tech, there are no laptops or projectors, just the speakers, the attendees and lots of fantastic ideas.
It’s not for profit, which means that it’s free for you to attend as speakers and organisers generously donate their time for the love of Agile.
Talks are short, with plenty of time for discussion, asking questions and getting back to work.
And badges… expect badges.
We schedule two awesome speakers each session who talk about anything related to Agile, people, teams and users. You can read more about the talks below.
Speakers have up to 10mins to convey their message in any way they choose, followed by 5mins for questions.
After the scheduled speakers we have Agile question time, a chance for you to ask the group any questions you have about Agile. Think of them as your agile agony aunts and uncles.
Agile on the Bench is:

What learning to knit reminded me about learning. Learning is central to agile teams and to us as individuals. In this talk, Emily will use her recent experience with learning a new thing to explore what creates the right environment for us to learn.
