What is Scrum Agile?

Breaking down the Manifesto
Add some Scrum sauce
Be more productive when emphasis is on developer(s)
REMOTE-SPECIFIC PROCESS
Methodology for remote dev

What challenges does remote development pose when selecting project process methodology?
Scaling the team/products/scope
Performance measuring
ADVANTAGES
What signifies the advantages with Scrum Agile when working remote?

Freedom (well, some…)
‘Some assembly required’ when spanning many time zones – but very adaptive
More ‘culturally agnostic’ than many other methodologies
DRAWBACKS
What are the pitfalls when working Scrum Agile remote?

Devs in the driver’s seat – mgmt in backseat
Not for the faint of heart, new to development
Nice in principle – requires the discipline IRL
TOOLS
Some suggestions and how/why they work

VCS
Project Mgmt
Issue handling
Chat, Gists/notes-share, misc
As remote work / digital nomads becomes more widespread it may be useful to see how to get the most out of it – I like and use scrum agile so the session will focus on why that’s a good thing (even if there’s drawbacks). After the session hopefully attendees will know more about working remote and in particular why using scrum agile is beneficial
