Last night I attended my first APLN (Agile Project Leadership Network) event. The speaker was none other than David Bland of the Scrumology website. Some of you may also recognize David from his posts on Agile Zone or from him speaking at Agile 2010. David did a great job talking about Distributed ScrumMasters. He was very engaging and there were some really great conversations as a result. The exchanges were so awesome that the time kind of got away from us all. Before we knew it, it was time to wrap things up. It was really great to have a chance to interact with this group of Agile proponents and thought leaders. I met a few friends I've only known from online and I got to chat with a few people I haven't seen since AgileDC2010. I was told Jeff Sutherland will be speaking next month! Check the APLN DC website for details.
If you are interested in joining the APLN DC Chapter, there's no cost. However, if last night's event was an indicator of value, it would be worth paying for.
