What We Do
The Keep Austin Agile Conference is the largest Agile conference in the state of Texas, drawing over 750 attendees in 2018. Since the first conference in 2012, it has been a key element in Agile Austin’s mission to promote Agile concepts, create a public forum for the exchange of Agile ideas, and foster the development of Agile practitioners in the community. The conference’s multiple tracks and interactive workshops include sessions for all experience levels from beginners to advanced agilists. REGISTER NOW FOR KAA 2019
Generally the 1st Tuesday of the month, 6:30-8:30 or so, the Agile Austin Monthly meeting is our groups monthly chance to meet, network, and listen to insights from a guest speaker. We strive to try to bring interesting speakers from a variety of backgrounds who can share their insights on Agile. We usually start with food and networking followed by the speaker and then finish up with announcements and giveaways. WOULD YOU LIKE TO SPEAK? - CLICK HERE
Special Interest Groups (SIGs)
We have upwards of 10 SIG meetings a month. These are usually at lunch, but sometimes are in the evening and are hosted at various locations around town. There are SIGs focused on a number of topics including Dev, QA, Coaching, Lean/Kanban, and Agile at Scale.
Agile Austin University
At Agile Austin, we are strong believers in learning through concrete exercises and practical application. That is, while theory and book knowledge are essential, the application of techniques is equally important to a true understanding. We produce an 8-week Agile Foundations Course 2 or 3 times a year and an Advanced Course whenever there's sufficient demand.
The Agile Austin Book Club meets the first and third Thursday evenings of most months, with dinner provided. We generally plan to be done by 8:30pm, but sometimes the discussions continue to 9 or later! As with most Agile Austin programs, there is no charge for attendance. In fact, if you come to a majority of a book's discussion sessions, we'll even reimburse you for the cost of the book.
We host a quarterly invite only executive luncheon focusing on executive leadership within the Agile community. This is a "no-pitch zone" luncheon for senior leadership with the accountability for making business decisions. This luncheon is convened to help senior leaders with agile software development teams of a dozen or more talk about our experiences and challenges of "Being Agile".
