      Mr. DJB – Thanks. You’re the only one remaining from my volunteer friends on SA/CSM group that I’ve not yet met. I’m looking forward to #SFAgile2012 and the #Zomblatt thing..

    Sameer! I’m so glad we are now “scouting” together here! I see that you already have an enthusiastic reception from several of our colleagues out there in the Land of Agile. No surprise. ;-)

    The thing that makes me laugh is remembering that you and I each had to travel from Atlanta to Columbus, Ohio to be introduced to each other at Agile Coach Camp US 2011. #accus What a great camp it was!

    PS, Special thanks and shout out to our friend @andrewmfuqua, lynchpin of @agileatlanta for so many years, since our early XP-Atlanta days! Thank you Andrew!

      It was a funny thing really. That visit to ACCUS, brought @andrewmfuqua and me closer as friends & WE got introduced. It was an amazing event and trip. I am glad I made that trip!
