About the Conference
What is the AgileIndy Conference?
The AgileIndy Conference is an annual one-day conference put on by AgileIndy in beautiful Indianapolis, Indiana. This year’s conference marks the 7th year of the conference, and it’s going strong.
We have keynote speakers sure to inspire you and experts in agile practices giving breakout sessions about Agile concepts at all levels of expertise. You can network with other professionals in the field and check out the sponsors.
Whether you’re on a team that’s moving to Agile for the first time or a 15-year Agile veteran, you’ll come away from the conference having learned something new that you can apply to your work right away.
What can you expect at the conference?
The day starts with breakfast and networking time with over 800 of your closest Agile-enthusiast friends. In the opening session, everyone comes together for a keynote speaker in our conference hall.
After the keynote, you’ll choose among breakout sessions in five learning tracks. You will be able to check out the descriptions in the program to get an idea of which topics pique your interest the most and are more appropriate to your experience level. After that first session, you’ll do it again for the second morning session.
Next everyone goes back to the conference hall for group lunch. This is a great chance to network with your peers and decide on your favorite presentations for the three afternoon sessions. This can also be the perfect time to drop in on the vendor showcase to get freebees and enter drawings.
Right after lunch is another keynote address before the afternoon breakout sessions. With everyone’s minds full and buzzing with new ideas, the group comes together one more time for the closing session (and to announce winners in any drawings!)
