The San Diego .NET Developers’ Group is one of the oldest continuous user groups in Southern California and is run exclusively by volunteers. The group was started by local developers that includes Richard Eckert, David Randolph and David McCarter in 1994 as the San Diego Visual Basic User Group. They evolved into the current form shortly after Microsoft .NET was released in 2002.
Since the beginning, they have catered to all levels of developers – beginner, intermediate and advanced levels, creating a fun environment for learning, sharing and networking. The group has not only launched many software engineers careers in San Diego but also helped other local developers find career opportunities to further their career development. The group has featured local developers presenting sessions along with developers from around the world.

Agile Retrospectives improve any project or process — building on a team’s immediate past experience of success and failure. Smart teams and organizations hold Retrospective meetings iteratively, throughout the work cycle and at important release milestones. With effective meeting design and facilitation, Retrospective leaders help team members systematically evaluate their own performance, explore their lessons learned, expand their capacity and capability, and forge ways to continuously improve their work and deliverables. Teams can’t truly call themselves Agile if they don’t include Retrospectives among their regular work practices.
As Agile Retrospectives become routine, they can also become stale and boring, delivering less value to the team. How can you prevent this? Keep your Agile Retrospective practice fresh through a renewed emphasis on team learning, collective analysis, and collaborative decision making. View Retrospective facilitation and design through the lens of Five Rules for Team Learning: Keep it Alive! Hunt Fluency, Start Obvious, Stay Focused, Adapt the Setting. Bring new activities and group processes to the meeting that will stimulate better thinking and improvements. In this workshop, Diana Larsen will introduce advanced uses of the Flexible Framework for Retrospectives and show how to incorporate the Five Rules for Team Learning in your Retrospective designs. Participants will share new team activities to enlarge your repertoire and gain practice in designing and facilitating effective Agile Retrospectives.
Introductions – including practice with new activities to “Set the Stage”
Agile Retrospective Purpose & Group Learning, Thinking, and Collaborating on Improvement Actions
Applying Five Rules for Learning in Retrospectives
Explore and practice new activities to “”Gather Data”, Generate Insights”, “Decide What to Do”, and “Close the Retrospective”
Retrospectives as Adaptive Action for “Responding to Change”
Designing Agile Retrospectives for Continuous Learning and Improvement
Experience with facilitating or participating in Agile Retrospectives for work in teams
