BIG NEWS! The DFW Scrum leadership team has focused our efforts to be an organization by the people, for the people, and of the people. Over the last two years, we have had various requests for remote MeetUps (simulcast, etc...) and actual satellite locations. Given that North Dallas may not be convenient for everyone and we have not been able to secure our quarterly location in Irving, we have decided to try adding a second location.

Starting with our July 15 MeetUp, DFW Scrum will now be held at two different locations across the DFW Metroplex. Our first satellite location will be in Southlake at the Sabre Headquarters-Solana (3150 Sabre Drive Room: A1-157 Southlake, TX). We have added a new member to our leadership team, Chris Palmer, to facilitate the 2nd location and are thrilled to have him onboard. Right now, the locations will likely hold different topics that suit the needs of the audiences in the locations. When we have large events (Agile Manifesto authors or industry thought leading speakers), we will work to simulcast the meeting so both locations can participate.

For now, when you look on our site however, you will notice two MeetUps occurring on the same date. We will try to keep the meetings to our 3rd Tuesday of each month and at our regular times of 6:30PM-8:30PM to afford better planning. Please be sure you look at the title of the MeetUp as the location will be the first piece of information in the title (i.e. DALLAS or SOUTHLAKE). We hope this helps those who are not always able to attend in Dallas participate in the agile community.  Our goal is to help you do better today than you were doing yesterday.

In my experience, applying agile methods improves delivery, strengthens relationships, and builds trust between business and IT. A big believer in the power of community-based learning, I grew the DFW Scrum user group significantly over the five years I served as an organizer.
