The Agile Development Conference is an integrated, 4-day conversation about techniques and technologies, attitudes and policies, research and experience, the management and development sides of agile software development. The agile approach focuses on delivering business value early in the project lifetime and being able to incorporate late breaking requirements changes by accentuating the use of rich, informal communication channels and frequent delivery of running, tested systems, and attending to the human component of software development.
The Agile Development Conference gives attendees access to the latest thinking in this domain and bridges communities that rarely get a proper chance to exchange ideas and thoughts, bringing together researchers from labs and academia with executives, managers, and developers in the trenches of software development. The Agile Development Conference is not about a single methodology or approach, but rather provides a forum for the exchange of information regarding all agile development technologies.
