What

Lone Star Community – Society for Technical Communication September Meeting

Topic

Agile Scrum, More Than Just a Buzzword

Hearing rumblings at work about “Xtreem programming” or “Going Agile?” Want to know what it really means and what it will mean to you? As technical communicators, we are always looking for the most efficient way to complete our tasks as our plates overflow. Believe it or not, Agile Scrum can help!

Kathryn Poe and Matt Stringfellow from DataCert, Inc. will discuss the basics of Agile Scrum, how we use it and explore how it can help you. “This framework has put me out in front of the process instead of lagging at the very end. It is amazing what a difference that makes to how I write and the input I have on the features before they land on my desk as a finished product,” says Poe.
