Agile2020 Will Not Move Online

Added to People

Our sincere thanks goes out to the Agile2020 Conference Chair, Program Committee, Track Chairs, Reviewers, Speakers, Sponsors, Volunteer Coordinators, Purple Shirt Volunteers, Agile Alliance members, and the Agile community as a whole for your patience and support as we have worked behind the scenes to determine how best to move forward during this unprecedented time.


After much reflection, the Agile Alliance Board of Directors has made the very difficult decision that Agile2020 — the largest annual global gathering of Agile practitioners — will not be reshaped into a virtual conference. We are unable to replicate the premier international event for the advancement of Agile software development in an online environment and foster the immersive experience that attendees from more than 50 countries treasure year after year.

We are in the process of creating new content in the form of webcasts, blog posts, Agile Coaching Network podcasts, Agile experience reports, and more that you can leverage in your daily work. We are also conceptualizing more opportunities and experiences to help you master Agile practices and deliver iterative solutions that delight customers.

This work is made possible by Agile Alliance members. If you are not already a member, I highly encourage you to become one and support efforts to spread the depth and breadth of Agile around the world. You can learn about member benefits here.

Please follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn to receive the latest updates about new resources. We will also keep you updated via our newsletter — sent every two weeks, it contains a wealth of information about new content, upcoming Agile Alliance events, and other Agile community events that we sponsor.

Lastly, would you please share your thoughts with us in a 4-question survey about your Agile20xx experience? Your answers and input will help us focus on what matters most to you.

Many thanks!
