After nearly thirteen years of meeting on the first Thursday of every month, the leaders of Agile San Diego have take the step to mix things up! Agile San Diego is moving to the second Thursday of every month beginning in September. This date change also coincides with a change in location to a new home in North Park.
A few months back, June, Gary and myself were thinking about how to re-energize the group and improve the dynamics of our meetings. We all agreed that Agile San Diego was at its best when we were hosted by The Linkery in North Park. Our meetings were well attended, our discussions were lively and we had more opportunities for social interactions after our speakers. When the organizers of SD LEARN approached us to see if the Agile San Diego community was interested in scheduling our meetings in North Park, we all jumped to say, “Yes!!”.
There was just one little hitch in accepting their generous offer – the first Thursday of the month was already taken by another usergroup. Since we already decided that a move was in the best interest of the group, we thought, “Why not change our night as well?”. So beginning on September 10th, Agile San Diego moves to its NEW night and NEW location in North Park.
As the founder of XP San Diego and co-founder of Agile San Diego, I am truly sad to say “good-bye” to our original night and after 13 years it is time for a change. I am also sad that we are leaving our location at Mitchell and want to personally thank everyone at Mitchell for hosting us, especially Joe Dailey. Everyone at Agile San Diego appreciates how much Joe and Mitchell have supported the community.
