Join us for Agile India, October 11-18

Added to The Alliance

One upside of moving events online because of pandemic restrictions is that Agile events around the globe are suddenly accessible to a much broader segment of our community.


Over the past week I’ve participated in Agile conferences and events originating from 3 different continents where I’ve met with friends from all over the world — all without leaving my chair.

My next conference stop will be Agile India, which is taking place October 11-18.  Agile Alliance strives to create spaces where people can come together to explore, innovate, and advance Agile around the globe, and we’ve been delighted to partner with Agile India over the past two years to help present the biggest Agile conference in Asia. It’s also one of the best Agile conferences anywhere (in my admittedly not-objective opinion as a former Agile India theme and conference chair).

Over its long history, Agile India has been a boundary-pushing Agile conference which strives to bring together divergent ideas about Agile approaches. Naresh Jain and the Agile India team are consistently able to attract the best speakers from around the world to create a programme where experienced Agilists are challenged by new ideas. This year’s virtual programme is built around four themes:

  • Agile Mindset
  • Design Innovation
  • DevEx and Devops
  • Chaos Engineering

The programme features an amazing roster of keynote speakers — Dave Snowden, Mary Poppendieck, Dr Anita Bhandari, Michael Feathers, Dan North, James Grenning, Dave Rensin, Kolton Andrus — as well as numerous talks and workshops spanning a broad range of topics. You can find out more about this year’s programme, as well as info about how to pick up a day pass or a full-conference ticket here.

And if you do attend, please drop by the Agile Alliance booth and say hi!
