There are two Yahoo dicussion groups that are important for people applying Scrum in Germany. We recommend that you join both:
- http://groups.yahoo.com/group/scrumdevelopment/ - is the English language group and is a great place for asking questions.
- http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/deutschescrum/ - is the German language group with less traffic but still worth following.
