[AgileIndy] Effective Retrospectives

Early last week my wife and I had an exchange that went something like this:

Esther: Did you know that AgileIndy is meeting on Tuesday evening?
Me: [blank stare]
Me: [silence]
Me: I didn’t know there was an AgileIndy!

Naturally I was a bit surprised (and proud) that she knew about a local software development group that I’d never heard of so i asked how she found out about it.  It turns out that she had been looking for some local events on Meetup and AgileIndy was one of the featured groups.

This “discovery” was very timely since I’m transitioning to a new team that’s going to be more agile than our teams have traditionally been.  Despite having read a few books and attending a few events like Cincinnati Day of Agile I’m still very new to it so I hopped onto the site, found their page and after reading a bit about it I decided I should go.
