We started the discussion on our involvement in the agile community and some of the conferences that we enjoy. We’re both connected by our love of the Agile Coach Camp conferences are both looking forward to this years meeting later in July in Washington DC.
The topic shifted to podcasting. We both host podcasts, product podcasts, and listen to podcasts. We fielded some of the questions that we sometimes get such as:
- This Agile Life
- Agile Revolution
- Agile in 3 Minutes
- Agile Toolkit Podcast
- Scrum Master Toolbox
How do you produce and record your shows?
- Ryan’s Setup:
What kind of equipment do you use?
- Rode Podcaster (mic
We moved on to the recent Scrum Coaching Retreat in Seattle where Victor and his team worked on the concept of coaching dojo’s. Finally, we discussed pair coaching and the impact this practice can have on coaches who are mentored in this manner. The similarities to pair programming are hard to ignore, as are the immediate benefits coaches can experience.
And then…we called it a night.
