Agile: The Gathering
Sep 6 @ 7pm
We invite you to gather with us at Grape and the Grain to enjoy quality community time together!
That is the whole plan. There is no agenda, no hook, this is a good old fashioned get together for the sake of getting together. Most of us are all still working remotely and, as such, opportunities to talk to other professionals face to face are few and far between. We can talk shop, about the weather, or anything in between. Whatever makes your soul happy and closer to those around you.
Come join and raise a glass – grape, grain, or otherwise – as we celebrate and fortify the wonderful community of people that make up Agile Orlando.* We look forward to seeing you!
