Agile Australia was founded in 2009 as an annual conference. Since then, not only has the conference itself grown to welcome over 1,200 delegates each year as well as high-profile speakers from around the country and the world, but Agile Australia has also become much more than a conference.
In 2012, Agile Australia crossed the Pacific and founded Agile Encore in New Zealand. Reprising the highlights of the annual conference, Agile Encore now takes place each year in an alternate Australian city.
Agile Australia also launched a special student event, Activate Agile. This free event – run as part of the annual Conference – supports students interested in careers in tech. Secondary and tertiary students, along with their teachers, come along each year to hear from real technology professionals and make connections with the industry, leading agilists and technologists.
Agile Australia is also home to the popular Agile Australia blog, and of course, the quarterly printed magazine, AgileTODAY. AgileTODAY features articles from leading Australian and international agilists.
To support the learning of the Agile community, Agile Australia Workshops and training offerings have also expanded. In addition to annual workshops held in conjunction with the Conference and Agile Encore, Agile Australia also hosts standalone and bespoke workshops and training courses, from local specialists and visiting thought-leaders like Barry O’Reilly.
Also emerging from Agile Australia are special events, like the unique event experience The Deep Dive, an evening with robotics specialist Kate Darling, and the chance to meet New York Times best-selling author Brant Cooper.
Agile Australia is managed by SlatteryIT and is dedicated to supporting Australia’s Agile community.
