This week has been a fun one. From talking about Kanban for new Agile teams (n00bs) to learning that we can be a certified Scrum Trainer by signing up on craigslist, this week has been one of learning new stuff!
We wrote our two most boring posts ever, on Agile and the government as well as hanging out with William Shatner and the legal environment utilizing Agile.
With a wintery-wonderland happening in Atlanta, this past week has been a good one to hunker down and really focus on pushing out some great content. We’re looking forward to what the next year will bring!
