The second annual AgileIndy Conference focuses on bringing thought leaders and practitioners from around the country to Indianapolis for an intense learning and networking experience. There will be a mix of sessions focused on agile basics, technical practices, and management and leadership topics among other things. If the planned sessions don’t interest you, there will be an open-space area where you can plan your own session and get other attendees and speakers to join you in your discussion! Whether you are completely new to agile or have been practicing agile for many years, there will be sessions to help you along your agile journey.
