Local Groups and Events
A good way to learn more about Lean and Agile is to attend local conferences and peer-to-peer groups. It is a fantastic, low-cost way to learn some great stuff, and to also meet other local practitioners.
Waterloo AgileLean is the Kitchener-Waterloo peer-to-peer group (founded by Leanintuit principal Declan Whelan). It hosts sessions by local presenters on the last Tuesday of every month.
Silicon Halton is the Halton Region’s peer group. The group hosts sessions by local presenters on a regular basis.
The Toronto Agile Community hosts a series of events in Toronto. Primary among them is the Agile Tour Toronto event, normally held in early November (Leanintuit principals were presenting two sessions at Agile Tour Toronto 2011).
