Some time ago, I set up a Google group for people to discuss all sorts of things about agile software development and agile project management, regardless of methodology.
To be honest, I never really promoted it much and Google has limited features and allows very little control over how the group works.
So now I've decided to set up a new Agile Forum using a technology called Ning.
Forums are notoriously difficult to get started, so if you don't find what you're looking for here, please go ahead and ask a question on the Agile Forum. Until there is a thriving community, I will answer any questions myself, so for a while you'll get direct access to me and all my experience of agile and other methods, absolutely free of charge.
The new Agile Forum has some other useful features:
- You can set up your own Groups, if perhaps you want to establish a local agile community, or for instance if you want to create a group to discuss particular aspects of agile, eg Scrum, eXtreme Programming, Lean or whatever you like!
- You can also add photos and videos, and attach files to forum posts if you have files you would like to share with the agile community.
- Last but not least, you can also add events - maybe training, conferences or meet-ups for example - to make sure the agile community doesn't miss a thing!
Of course I realise there's not a lot there for you to see just yet, but all communities have to start somewhere! Why not sign up to this Agile Forum and maybe ask a question, create a group or add an event?
