We will use the RSVP headcount for the Girl Scout cookie count . . . yummmm

As in prior years, AgilePhilly meets the TUESDAY EVENING smack in the middle of the Philly ETE conference at the Sheraton Olde City on 2nd street. We converse with the speakers who come to town to speak on the Agile track of the conference.

Same as last year when we had a free-form discussion. We generally start at 6:00 PM in a meeting room at Old City Sheraton where the Philly ETE Conference is held - look for signs to point to the room.

Late arrivals are welcome to come and jump in anytime.

I usually sneak in a plate of cookies

We generally only get about 10 to 12 people to show up, but this committed core of people drive the subject of conversation and we keep it informal with just chairs-in-a-circle format.

We stop at 7:30 so speakers can get dinner, or re-convene in the bar or the restaurant.

When Andre did it, he would often propose a topic, but I just let the conversation happen.

So just show up when you can, and bring a question or two, and be prepared to learn something new.


Our thanks to Chariot Solutions for offering the meeting space for this meeting. No food is available for this meeting, but we hope you will join us afterwards at the bar or restaurant.


To get to the location - I take the subway to 2nd and Market and walk south 3 blocks.

For drivers, there is valet parking at the hotel and parking lots nearby.
