    • I also blame 1click buy from amazon. The number keeps growing πŸ˜‰ Thanks all.. sooo much too read not enough coffee in my life…

  1. Awesome. Thank you, Emily, for initiating these meetups and for hosting today’s Lean Coffee.

    I especially liked the discussion around remote teams, as we have people in USA, Singapore and Philippines joining daily scrums.

    The phrase “”communication corridor” came up and I have already gone to one team to let them know about the concept behind it. Namely, to state explicitly what time teams in a country are open for impromptu comes, and conversely implying the rest of the times that team members are generally in a focused, flow mode of development.

    Looking forward to Agile in the Ether no.5!

    Best wishes,
