If you work with or are exposed to Agile practices, we welcome to you join the Agile Peer Learning Group to share perspectives and experiences on the good, bad, and ugly on how Agile practices have impacted you in the workplace. This is a great opportunity to learn and connect with others who are passionate and enthusiastic about Agile practices in the Central Pennsylvania community. Come prepared to pose agile-related issues, questions, problems and / or opportunities to the group and leave with a wealth of insights based on the experience of the others in attendance.
