It’s time again for the spring Desert Code Camp in the Phoenix area. The no-cost event will be on Saturday, April 2nd. Free breakfast and lunch and over 100 sessions(PDF) about programming, development and business. Especially if you are interested in Agile and Scrum, you should be there to learn more and make contacts!
Scrum – Ease The Hard Parts
I have participated in this volunteer event in the past and this Saturday is no exception. I will lead a session at 10:15 AM where we will review the Scrum framework and discuss the places where the framework can be hard to implement. We will share experiences and techniques for getting through these places for even better performance.
Agile Content Abounds!
Before I list the many sessions about Agile and Scrum, let me remind you of an important point. Desert Code Camp is free, as in no-cost. A free opportunity to learn, ask questions and discover gems from practitioners sharing their experience. Find a session or two or more to take advantage of this community gift!

Classes for Kids
There are a number of sessions designed specifically for children to get hands-on experience programming and creating. Thanks to Gangplank Jr., you can bring your young offspring to learn programming with Scratch, build Lego robots and other things. Check the schedule for these classes marked with minimum age appropriate notation.
It will be a great Saturday! If you don’t attend my session, look around for me to say hello before the day is done.
