October 2012 marked the 1st anniversary of Agile here at Valpak. It was October 17th of 2011 that we started Sprint #1 across multiple Scrum teams and haven’t stopped sprinting since. In recognition of this momentous occasion, what better than a roast of the man himself, Agile. We all know that we roast the ones that can take it and the ones we respect the most. So, let’s roast Agile!
The structure of the roast was an open mic format, so teams (or anyone for that matter) could come up to the podium at any time to present or say a few words. Most teams found or created videos for the event. One Scrum team created a video spoof of a scene from the Office Space movie; the scene where they take the printer out and beat the crap out of it.
Since Agile couldn’t speak for himself, he brought along his playlist of music in response to being roasted. Agile’s playlist was a diverse mix of tunes:
If you ever have a a need to celebrate something, have some fun, or just blow off some steam, I would definitely recommend the roast format.
