The Agile Australia conference is now in its third year which brings together Australian enterprises who are transforming their processes by the adoption of Agile methodologies.
Agile Australia 2011 was a great success, with over 700 attendees, 65 speakers, and two days of real-world Agile experiences. Planning for Agile Australia 2012 is underway, and promises to be as exciting and cutting-edge as ever.
The Agile approach is being adopted by companies across the world - from Salesforce, Bankwest, and Suncorp to Aconex, Atlassian, and Sensis. It focuses on iterative development; little by little, collaborative teams can build solutions for their customers faster and better than before.
Agile Australia is supported by the international Agile Alliance. In 2011, the Agile Australia conference was sponsored by ThoughtWorks, Agile Academy, DiUS, IBM, MIP, Rally Software, SMS MT, Centrum Systems, and salesforce.com.
An incredible range of local and overseas speakers are involved in the Agile Australia conferences, including: Jim Highsmith, co-author of the Agile Manifesto; Alistair Cockburn, co-author of the Agile Manifesto; Martin Fowler, Chief Scientist, ThoughtWorks; Jeff Smith, CEO, Suncorp Business Services, Suncorp; Patrick Eltridge, Chief Information Officer, Telstra; Daniel Oertli, Chief Information Officer, REA Group; and John Sullivan, Head of Technology New Business Development, Jetstar.
As creator and manager of the Agile Australia conference, each year SlatteryIT oversees the entire event from beginning to end, including the creation of the program, speaker submission process, sponsor recruitment and management, promotion and marketing, and every aspect of execution.
