Octobeer - Agile Beer Night
Well folks, dang - it's already halfway through October and I haven't scheduled October's Agile Beer Night yet!
Unfortunately I won't be able to make it all the way over to Seattle this month, so the October Agile Beer Night will be at 5PM on October 28 at
Daman's Pub is on 148th Ave NE, just south of the 520 freeway on-ramp on the East side of the street. It's a nice place and hopefully a little kinder to multiple-check parties than the last joint... They have great food and of course... BEER! Be there before 5:30 to take advantage of the happy hour discounts on drinks and food. Menus and beers on tap are listed on their web site.
So BOO and Happy Octobeer!
Remember, it's 5PM on Tuesday the 28th at Daman's... see you there!
And tell a friend!

Tuesday is September Agile Beer Night
Do you do Agile Software Development? Do you want to? Do you want to find out how to do it better? Do you just like to talk about Agile? Do you just like BEER? If you said YES to any of these questions... you need to be at Agile Beer Night!
So Please join us at the Celtic Bayou at 5 or so Tuesday September 30 for some beer and great conversation about Agile Software Development!
Parking can be a bear there, depending on how many people show up... You can take the ST545 bus and get off at the West Lake Sammamish stop, it's right across the street from the pub. Couldn't be more convenient! It goes all the way from Seattle out to the Bear Creek P&R, and it runs both directions early until late.
See you there!
Beer There or Be Thirsty!

Looking for Speakers/Topics
If anyone has any suggestions for a topic of conversation, or a speaker that might be willing to present something on Agile for about 15-20 minutes, please respond and let us know! There aren't projection facilities but someone could just get a round-table discussion going, or say a few words about a particular topic.
Please let us know by responding to this post.

September Agile Beer Night
Please join me on Tuesday September 30 from 5PM to 7PM at the
Cafe and Irish Pub in Redmond for September's Agile Beer Night! We don't yet have a topic for discussion or a guest presenter, but please stay tuned...
Do you practice Agile software development? Do you want to? It's open to all, so please come join us, have a pint, and discuss Agile Development! Tell two friends, and then bring them along!
¡ vivan los agilistas !
P.S. Please let me know if you are able to attend by adding a comment, so that I can let the establishment know how many people to expect.
P.P.S. For those of you who are in Seattle, there is a direct bus, the
Sound Transit 545
that runs very frequently all evening, and has a stop in Redmond literally across the street from the pub. That makes it really easy and no driving and parking! Plus then you can have an extra pint! Bonus!

Become a Certified Agile Developer!
The UW Extension for Professional Development and Continuing Education now has a
Certificate Program in Agile Development
. It's being taught by some guys I used to work with first-hand, so I happen to know they are all pretty good at Agile Development. They are certainly highly qualified, and this certification course is a good opportunity for those folks who may not be as familiar with Agile principles to get some good instruction on how to do it well. Be sure to
, as this course is likely to fill fast.
