deliver:Agile 2020 Program Announced

Added to Process

Agile Alliance is pleased to announce the program for our annual technical conference, deliver:Agile 2020, which is tailored to software developers who want to learn more about emerging Agile technical practices. It will be held April 29 – May 1 at the Hilton Columbus Downtown in Columbus, Ohio.

In its fifth year, deliver:Agile 2020 creates an environment that enables attendees to immerse themselves in a deeply engaging experience which unites software engineering and architectural ideas under the umbrella of Agile thinking.

With keynotes by Liz Fong-Jones (Principal Developer Advocate for SRE & Observability,, “Cultivating Production Excellence”) and GeePaw Hill (Owner,, “Changing Changing Software: The Why, the How, and the What”), this highly-anticipated three-day conference will explore topics such as test and design practices and techniques; DevOps approaches and technologies; User Experience (UX) design and implementation; and cloud computing technologies and patterns.

The deliver:Agile 2020 program brings together the pioneers of Agile technical practices with some of the industry’s rising stars and most exciting new voices from a variety of technical disciplines (software development, testing, operations, architecture, design, and more),” said Conference Chair Cat Swetel. “Together these generations of Agilists will explore the history and the future of Agile and XP in light of the evolving technology landscape and emerging trends. We are excited to have such a diverse set of topics and viewpoints to spark discussion and engage technologists in the Agile community!.”

Agile is now a multidisciplinary ecosystem that includes Developers, QA, UX Designers, Infrastructure Engineers, Data Scientists, Cloud Specialists, and more. Attendees will learn about the wealth of new Agile tools and techniques as well as fresh patterns and practices. The knowledge they gain will enable them to better support and evolve their engineering practices in light of these new capabilities and emerging technologies.

I encourage conference attendees register and book hotel reservations early. Group registrations are available for 5 or more people.
