Dr. Dave Cornelius and 5 Saturdays – Bringing Agility to the Next Generation at Agile2016

Dr Dave Cornelius joined Agile Amped in Atlanta, GA, to talk about a program called 5 Saturdays, which engages with teenagers on–you guessed it–five Saturdays to introduce them to agility and technology, such as using WordPress to create websites. Job readiness and effective communications are the focus of this program. Topics for the first class include Kanban and user stories. Agile Alliance and Scrum Alliance both sponsor 5 Saturdays, which is free to the public.

Started in 2013, 5 Saturdays operates out of Costa Mesa, CA, but they hope to expand to LA and San Diego. Industry professionals, coaches and trainers donate their time to the program. This year, women constitute the majority of the attendees coming to learn about Agile at 5 Saturdays.
