Alley’s core company values of quality, transparency and accountability closely align with the values of Scrum and, more broadly, the principles of agile software development. However, recent events have led us to consider how the practice of Scrum also supports our community values – radical candor, psychological safety, asynchronous communication, diversity, and inclusion.
We’re excited to head to this year’s Online News Association‘s annual conference ONA16 in Denver Colorado. Like last year, we’re proud to be a sponsor of the conference. I’ll be joined in Denver by a number of Alley team members, including CEO Austin Smith, CTO Matt Johnson, Chief Strategy Officer Brad Campeau-Laurion, Director of Product Development Josh Kadis, and Director of Editorial Strategy Megan McCarthy.
If you’re at ONA16, swing by our booth in the Capitol Ballroom to learn more about our work and get a free drink ticket for our Office Happy Hours on Friday, September 16th from 3-5pm. We’ll be serving our signature cocktails, the “Bulleit Point” and the “Branded Cocktail Experience.”
Alley Interactive joins other Midway sponsors, including Reddit, Chartbeat, and Guardian US.
