I’m so grateful for having a space like the Agile Uprising. I have recommended the board (and podcast) to a number of people I meet working in the space. I found something like the Scrum Alliance forums didn’t really meet me where I was (and am) at.
I’m a beginner on this journey. I am a dev, an agile newbie of less than 2 years and don’t pretend to be anything more. This board has given me a safe space to ask questions and try out ideas on people who spend time thinking about similar things. I appreciate when people I respect challenge me. I double appreciate that it has been done with honesty, humbleness and empathy. The ideas that I’ve seen come out of some simple conversations are helping me in my day to day work.
Whatever you change, do not lose this!
The thing I would like to see more of is numbers on the board, but I’m not sure how to help with this other than get the word of mouth happening on it. I remember finding the board after a mention on the podcast, so maybe a couple more plugs for new listeners if numbers are going up.
Podcast-wise I enjoy cross-pollination of ideas with shares from other podcasts. Ryan Ripley, for instance, I find adds value wherever he goes. Even if I don’t agree, he always creates discussion. The Metallica podcast wasn’t for me, but that’s cool. I appreciated that you tried something different and I can guarantee there were others that loved it.
Missing. I don’t think AU is missing this, but If someone can explain SAFe in away that doesn’t make my head explode, I would probably not say no. I get the big picture and I know how structure can help people achieve, but I admit SAFe is a little beyond me at this point in my journey. Well… I’m not in a super huge org, so it isn’t my problem yet. Just curious
Overall, thank you for providing this space.
