Drama Geek: How Eating Pretend Ice Cream Made Me a Better Scrum Master (Cass Van Gelder)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Cass Van Gelder admits it: her parents cringed when she told them she was majoring in theatre. "Ugh! You'll never find a job!" her mother cried.
Fast-forward twenty+ years, and not only does she have a job, she has a thriving, fun career at Video Gaming Technologies, Inc. Though not in drama (she does still experience some), she liberally applied her theatrical background and put it to good Agile use!
From planning gigantic theatrical productions on small budgets to acting out difficult conversations, learn how she applied the crazy, fun world of theatre to the wonderful theater of Agile.
