Good news ... bad news

The Good news

-> Our "Agile Day" (in conjunction with ScotlandIS and sponsored by VISION consulting) went very well. We had over 100 people turn out between the two sessions. AgileScotland Regulars Tim Munro, Callum Lindsay, Peter Aitken, Mark Davidson, Ali Law, Rob Lally, and Paul Wilson contributed their time and enthusiasm towards "spreadin the word". Feedback so far has generally been very positive. I personally learnt lots and lots and lots. We'll be repeating some of the sessions during the year.

-> We've agreed with ScotlandIS, the Scottish Trade body for IT stuff, to become "partner" organisations, which is great for getting our "cause" a wider audience.

-> Agile guru Tom Gilb is going to be in Scotland later this year and he'll be running a session for us in September. Plus, I'm going to organise a public course or two. He wrote what I consider to be the first "agile" book - over 18 years ago - and his inspection book is a classic.

-> Craig Murphy is leaving C&B for pastures new. So congratulations Craig. Sounds like a fun move.

The Bad news

-> Since Craig is leaving ... we need a new meeting location. Can you help? Do you have any suggestions for meeting locations in Edinburgh or Glasgow? Free would be good, but not totally necessary.

I'll announce the next session as soon as we have a meeting place!
