Tuesday 29th of November 2016
Announcement: We’ve had to move our regular date to the LAST TUESDAY of the month – we’re still at our great new venue at Sheffield Hallam University campus Cantor Building (153 Arundel Street, Sheffield, S1 2NU).
After a bit of a break we are back with a sort-of off-topic session for November:
6:30pm, Agile Special
We’ll start the session with free food (likely pizza) and drinks. Arrive early, the first talk begins at 7pm!
If you have any queries contact Kimb via firstname.lastname@example.org
7:00pm: There’s no place like Agile
Katie Attwood, Freelance Business Analyst
Agile as a term can be understood or misunderstood.
Agile as a principle can be applied correctly or incorrectly.
Or everything in between.
Katie will talk through her continuing (or never ending…?) journey – starting from understanding what agile is and how it can be applied at work and home.
7:30pm: Learning Agile – a MoSCoW approach
Matthew Love, Sheffield Hallam University
Matthew is a tutor of “DevOps” and many things Data. Has worked at Sheffield Hallam University for many years.
This talk, by Matthew will explore the potential use of fixed requirements but MoSCoW (“Must, Should, Could, Won’t”) levels of acceptance criteria in the context of students learning both Agile and WordPress skills.
8:15pm: WordPress news roundup & WordCamp updates
Kimb Jones, WordPress Sheffield organizer and Managing Director of Make Do
An overview of what’s been happening since last months meetup along with a look forward at any significant WordPress releases and a general look at important news from the WordPress community.
We’ll also be checking out upcoming WordCamps including an overview of WCUS and looking at UK-based WordCamps to attend in 2017.
8:45pm: Speaker Q&A…
Everyone bring your best questions!
We’ve split the question and answers into their own panel-style session to make sure we hit our timings and don’t run over.
This gives everyone a chance to ask questions without rushing along and will open up a broader style of questions that are not specifically about either of the three talks.
Don’t forget to thank the people who make this happen!
Local hosting company PipeTen are our 2016 venue partners and donate to the event to help make sure that the Sheffield meetup continues to happen.
