Be sure to come to our Joint meeting on Functional Testing on Jan 11th at Microsoft in Malvern. It is with SPIN, and as a tester / QA person you should be on their mailing list since they have the BEST meetings on Software Testing.
Also on Dec 15th, there is a meeting on MAVEN builds & Continuous Integration.
And in Feb, look for a Lean KANBAN talk.
P.S. I live in Downingtown, and work with legacy-procedural programming language, a sister language of COBOL. Even in my field, AgilePhilly still gives me lots of valuable insight, .
