May 14th 2019 - MUG Meeting
We meet at 6:30pm on the second Tuesday of each month at the Farmington Community Library.
Introvert's Journey to Agility
The Agile Methodology of development, Extreme Programming practices, and modern agile principles put much of their emphasis on collaboration. But what happens if you are an introverted person? Introverts find being around lot of people drains their energy. Introverts are more productive in independent projects and seek solitude. Stimulation distracts them and leaves them unfocused. Arati found this out first-hand. As an introverted person her first agile experience made her feel like she could not thrive in that environment. In this talk Arati will share her experiences and strategies for introverts to work effectively on true agile teams. It's a talk you won't want to miss.
