deliver:Agile Live!

deliver:Agile Live!

| A Virtual Event Series |

Living in extraordinary times requires extraordinary thinking.

Agilists are facing unprecedented challenges in the time of COVID-19.

Thinking outside the box is what the Agile community does best — and deliver:Agile Live! is where we do it.

deliver:Agile Live! is a series of monthly virtual sessions that explore technical topics and focus on how to support Agile practitioners and grow good Agile engineering practices in remote settings.  We’re keeping the spirit of the deliver:Agile conference, and turning it into an ongoing series of talks and workshops through the year.  This won’t come as news to any Agilists, but smaller, more frequent deployments are ideal for highly uncertain situations. Having a monthly event enables us to respond to the needs of the Agile technical community in real time and collect tons of input and stories from them in order to build a rolling program of relevant content.

Each event will feature Agile experts who are leading the way in adapting Agile technical content and practices to the challenges we face during the global pandemic with the intent of opening a conversation and supporting our community.

Join us and engage with other technical professionals who need new strategies, tactics, and solutions to lead their organizations’ digital transformations.

deliver:Agile live! sessions are priced modestly so that we can cover costs.  Having said that, we know that the past year has been a challenging for many in our community. If you would like to attend but are having difficulties with the registration pricing,  please email our registration team for information about options.
