What We Do
AgileAustin is proud to present our first Virtual Keep Austin Agile! We've got three amazing speakers: David Bland, Evan Leybourn, and L. David Marquet — all there to help us in this fundraising event for two fantastic local non-profits: Frontline Foods and African American Youth Harvest Foundation. We are giving 100% of the donations go to charity. If you don't want to donate, enter promo code for a free ticket: KAA 2020 - Learn more and register HERE!
Generally the 1st Tuesday of the month, 6:30-8:30 or so, the AgileAustin 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 AgileAustin, 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 AgileAustin 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".
